2020 NNHS Virtual Science and Invention Fair
Time & Location
About the Event
The 2020 NNHS Science and Invention Fair is going virtual!
We will be using the BAND app to share Fair entries, provide feedback, and vote for awards. Once your student(s) are registered, you will receive BAND log-in info. BAND is a free app that allows groups to communicate securely, including sharing videos, between approved group members. Only registered Fair participants, their parents/advisors, and NNHS Board Members will have access to the BAND group.
Participants will create short (2-5 minute) videos describing their project and showing their tri-fold poster. Videos will be uploaded to the appropriate album in the Band Group.
Please register by Wednesday, November 11, 2020.
This event is FREE! Homeschoolers will work on a project of their choice at home, with parent/advisor supervision.
This event will showcase inventions and science projects. Students may enter either an invention or a science project or both. Separate projects must be entered for each if student(s) wish to participate in both fairs.
Science Project: each student will complete a science project and make a tri-fold poster explaining the project. A scientific notebook & report may be included.
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.
Entries will be split into 4 grade groups: K-3, 4-6, 7-9, 10-12. Group projects will be entered into the group corresponding to the highest grade of the group entrants.
Entries will be reviewed by other participants in the BAND group. Feedback will be encouraged from everyone, especially peers. 'People's choice' awards will be given.
Projects and inventions must be posted to BAND by 11:59pm on Friday, November 13, 2020. Reviews, feedback, and award voting will take place from Saturday, November 14 through Friday, November 20.
Awards will be announced on Saturday, November 21, 2020.
By entering the Fair, you agree to allow Band group members to review your entry and display during the entire fair.
NOTE: Experimenting with vertebrate animals, humans, or animal tissues or organs is NOT recommended.
Please note, due to declining participation in the Western Nevada Regional Science & Engineering Fair, it has been suspended after 50 years of operations. Unfortunately, this means both the resources on their website and the next level of competition is no longer available.
