Registration

To participate please fill out the online Registration Form. Please note registration closes on Friday, March 15 to allow us time to plan final logistics. The experiment or project doesn't need to be done, or even decided on, by the registration deadline, we just need to know who is planning to participate. Spring Break will give lots of time to create and complete an experiment or project.

Resources

For help in determining a good science question, you may want to review the list of Science Fair past questions.

There are also many great resources for science experiment ideas in the Maple Grove library, the public library (children’s science section), and on the internet. Some particularly good websites are:
