1. Complete CRE Science Fair registration form (will also be sent home in Tuesday folders) and return to your child's teacher by Wednesday, January 9. Due to judging schedules, we will not be able to accept entries after January 9th.
2. Follow Austin Regional Science Guidelines
Pay special attention to the display guidelines. For example, do not bring any liquids, fragile, or expensive items for use in your display. Instead, plan on photographing your project steps that may require these elements and display them on your project board.
3. Bring your completed tri-fold display board (36”x48”) on your assigned project due date (January 23rd, 24th, or 25th). Do not put your name on the front of the board. Instead fill out this form.
Back of Board Info
Attach completed form to the back of your display board.
Fill in your project type: Exhibit or Experiment.
These project types are explained from the Austin Regional Science Fair website
Please click below to see the rubrics for exhibits and experiments.
Students will be called from their class during their assigned judging day to be interviewed by 3 volunteer judges. Help your student be prepared to describe why they selected their project, what question they were asking or what they wanted to understand, steps they used to create their projects, etc. Unfortunately, due to the number of students and projects, parents will not be able to be present during the student interviews with judges.
We have spots open for judges, if you are interested in volunteering, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org including your name, phone number, and times you are available January 23rd, 24th, or 25th.
