Have your kids ever asked you how airplanes fly? Or what rainbows are made of? Encourage them to answer their own science questions by participating in the Maple Grove Science Fair. It’s a fun and empowering way for students to explore the world of science! All grades and skill levels are encouraged to participate. Below are the key details for the 2023 Science Fair:
March 17: Registration deadline
March 29: After school set-up
March 30: Science Fair!
8-2:30 pm: Classes visit and participants explain project to scientists
6-7 pm Family celebration and awards
For questions or more info, please contact Brian Hansen, Science Fair Coordinator
To participate please fill out the online Registration Form. Please note registration closes on Friday, March 17 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.
Science Fair Notebook
Remember to fill out your Science Fair Notebook as you are preparing and conducting your project. All participants are required to bring their completed notebook on the day of the Science Fair. The Science Fair Notebook is available to download in Microsoft Word, but let us know if you require a different format.
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:
