16/08/2016 - All entries need to be in! Any independent entries need to contact us via the Facebook page. Time to make everything look nice and time to read the project again. Does it make sense? Can anyone understand what you did quickly and easily? We’re very excited to see what you have accomplished this year. Remember, if you have managed to get an entry to the Fair you are already a winner at your school, so congratulations! Committee meeting this Thursday.

02/08/2016 - Have some updated forms for you. All entries to the Science Fair need to complete the Photo Consent form and the Safety and Certification form. All entries also have to enter your name and project name into a Google doc that your teacher will give to you. This is to get your name right on all the certificates! Just a few weeks to go, all the best.

17/05/2016 - Hope you’ve been keeping up with the posts over on our Facebook page. We’re right into Term 2 and the projects should be well under way! A reminder that the final entries close on Monday 15th August. Please note all the dates, times and places in the Timeline Information section below and mark them in your calendar.  

22/02/2016 - Time to make your teacher read this website and get the students creating ideas! What topic are you interested in? There’s no time like the present. For the older ones you can sign up to our Facebook page for feedback and regular updates.

Teachers need to register their school now here.

Students, find out if your school is doing the Fair. If not then talk to us via Facebook to find a mentor for you.
