What Is This Science Fair About?
A Science Fair is aimed at motivating young people to undertake extracurricular activities in the form of a science project. The project can range from simple library research for young children to a complex independent research project for those of high school age. Such work provides a learning situation with characteristics not normally duplicated in school work (real problems, long closure, no one answer, greater complexity, etc.) and provides for the development of attributes important to adult success (independence, initiative, creativity, persistence, etc.) also in ways not duplicated in school.
Who May Participate?
Exhibits on any scientific subject made by students may be entered if students are enrolled in any class from grade 1 through grade 12 in any parochial, private, or public school in DeKalb, Noble, LaGrange, Steuben, or St. Joseph counties.
A contestant may enter only one exhibit, either as an individual or with one partner only. An exhibit must not be an identical repetition of one shown by the same exhibitor or the same group at a Science Fair of a previous year.
