Science Fair

2016 Washington Science Fair - February 18, 2016

Please register and see additional details, including forms for each type of project, at


It’s time to start thinking about what type of project you’d like to do:


1. "Collection" - projects such as rock, insect, leaf, seed, and fossil collections


2. "Observations/Report" - Includes written reports and recorded scientific observations (in nature, weather, astronomy, or a survey, etc.).


3. "Model" - Includes science-related models such as the earth/moon system.


4. "Demonstration" - Includes demonstrations of scientific principles, and "experiments" where the outcome is known.


5. "Experiment" - Includes projects in which the student uses effective controls to investigate the effects of a controlled variable.


The projects will be reviewed by volunteers during the day.  Family and friends may come and view the projects from 4:00-6:00 PM.  Please come and collect your project at 6:00 PM. 



Each participant will receive a ribbon. An Excellence Ribbon will be awarded for projects that meet the criteria, which are detailed in the attachments on the site accessed above. Projects in each category should include an analysis of the data/information and an appealing display. You will receive more information later about your assigned project number and what to do on Science Fair Day.
