Calling all young scientists! It's time for the annual NHE PTA Science Fair!
All students are encouraged to participate by working on a science project and displaying it proudly at the fair.
Below are the basic guidelines:
Register to participate.
All other young scientists wishing to display a project at the fair must register in advance through this online form. We strongly encourage early registration in order to reserve your space for your project board. Final registration deadline is February 10.
Projects should be student driven.
Project ideas should come from the students, and the project should be driven by them. Parents should use their best judgment in deciding when to get involved, such as when there is a potential safety issue. For especially young kids, parents may provide some guidance, but it is important that the kids be able to call the project their own.
Working with someone else.
Students may work independently or with a partner who is also a student at NHE (for example, a classmate or sibling). For group projects, each person should register individually online and indicate they are part of a group.
Need help choosing a topic?
When it comes to choosing a topic, the sky is the limit! What have you wondered about? Is there a problem you can help solve? The best topics come from your own genuine curiosity about how something works, or why something is the way that it is. Click here for a list of project ideas.
If you have trouble thinking of something on your own, visit the school or local library. You also could grab an adult and check out the internet, which is full of resources to help you choose a topic.
Follow the guidelines.
To see how your project might look, click on this project board diagram. Don't forget to include your name(s), grade, and teacher somewhere on your presentation!
Go to our Tips and Guidelines page for detailed recommendations and guidelines on creating your science project.
***TRI-FOLDS CAN BE PICKED UP AFTER SCHOOL ON WEDS 1/17 or FRI 1/26***
Judging and awards.
Our science fair goal is to encourage scientific exploration and discovery and promote a deep, lifelong passion for science. Earn a ribbon for participation and presenting your project to a judge during the fair. Judges will score your work using guidelines found HERE.
Bring your project to the NHE gym Feb. 15th at 6 pm to check-in your display. Set up finishes at 6:30, then viewing and judging begins.
Please review the Science Fair Safety Rules before submitting your work.
Students should have the opportunity to visit the Science Fair during the daytime with their classes and are invited back in the evening with their families.
Pick up your project at the end of the night. Please try to take your project home at the end of the Fair. Displays not picked up that evening will be recycled.
Volunteers needed! A big event like the Science Fair wouldn't be possible without our fantastic volunteers. You don't need to be a scientist! If you can help us set up in the evening on Thursday, February 15th, please register online to volunteer!
