• The time has come for Webster’s Annual Science Fair and Exhibition! It will take place April 19-20, 2022. It is open to all students in the Webster community, but is required for Family 2 students. As it is every year, the theme is understanding the science behind your project. In other words, why does your project work the way it does?

    The Science Fair is a judged competition. All entries are judged by the same basic criteria, but the criteria are weighted differently according to the developmental level of the student. Part of the evaluation process is an interview conducted by a judge.

    The Science Exhibition is a non-judged, non-competitive exposition. These entries are not judged, but students are offered the opportunity to discuss their projects one-on-one with an interviewer, if desired.

    Students may enter either the Science Fair or the Science Exhibition and may choose to work alone or with one partner. There are strict size parameters and rules about glass and liquids, so please read the attached Project Display Guide  (page 4)carefully.

    The Resource Guide is a valuable reference for determining what area of the Science Fair and Exhibition to enter. It also provides detailed guidelines for each type of project. Please review this document before submitting your Participation Form. It is available on the Webster Elementary website, under PTA → Science Fair & Exhibition.

    Parents are encouraged to help their children through their projects but should keep in mind that a successful project is one in which it is clear that the child led the project, and in doing so, developed a broad base of knowledge on the subject.

    FInally, if there are any questions, concerns or comments, feel free to contact any of us. We are all looking forward to another year of boundless enthusiasm and terrific projects!

     

    Sincerely,

    Webster PTA and Science Fair Team
