To allow as many students to participate as possible:
Grades K-3: Can choose to do research on a state, create an invention, or complete a science project – State: each student will read a book about a state then make a tri-fold poster with information about the state. Invention: each student will create his/her own invention, make a model of it using items around the house and make a tri-fold poster explaining the invention. (This section will not be judged. Every entrant will receive a participation ribbon and will learn a great deal by participating).
Grades 4-12: Will do a science project – each student will present a tri-fold poster accompanied by a scientific notebook & report. (This section will be judged. The grades will be split into 3 groups: 4-6, 7-9, 10-12).
Qualified Judges Needed: We will need at least 3 judges per grade group for the science fair. They can overlap as long as they are not related to entrants. Each judge should have a basic science, technology, or engineering background. Know a professor or grad student at UNR; are you or your spouse qualified; do you have a local friend, neighbor or relative who is qualified? If you have someone in mind, please contact Alicia Hansen (contact info below).
NOTE: Experimenting with vertebrate animals, humans, or animal tissues or organs is NOT recommended.
