Science Fair

A science fair experiment is generally a competition where contestants present their science project, results in the form of a report, display board, and/or models that they have created. Science fairs allow students in elementary, middle and high schools to compete in science and/or technology activities. The main motive of a science fair is for students to answer a question or task, not from a textbook but found out themselves by conducting a range of experiments and ongoing research in the short amount of time allocated to them. In order that the questions or tasks spark a true interest in the student they should be able to have an interesting, eye catching project often portrayed on a display board [ Definition from Wikipedia].

Registered participants will  present/display their projects/experiments/invention/models. There will be a judging panel who will select the top 3 projects and respective students will be awarded prizes. This is a limited participation event. We can take at maximum of 50 projects.

We welcome 4th standard to 10th standard students.

Students may do projects individually or as group of two or three.

There’s no limit on what makes a good science fair project. To get started, you could ask your kids about what they’ve learned in their science class. Maybe those lessons will spark ideas for project.

There are many ways to choose a project. You could start by sitting down with your child and discussing what they have been doing in science class . The questions your children raise can also inspire a project. After deciding on the topics of interest to your child, you could do basic internet search for the feasible projects. Your child’s own imagination is a good source of inspiration. Remember, simple is best.

Your child should understand what it is that they are trying to do, and be able to explain it to others.  The information in the display board can be done by hand or printed, depending on your child’s age and inclinations.  The complexity of the topic should be appropriate to grade/level appropriate.

The goal is to get your child to choose a simple question in an interested topic and pursue the answers.  The emphasis should be on simplicity; the project should be child driven, child created, and fully understood by your child.  They may choose to do an experiment, research a science topic of interest, or try their hand at inventing something new. Try to guide your child to a project that is in their area of interest, and within their ability to complete safely.

The project boards are white, three-panel poster boards with sides that fold-in so that it can stand on its own.

  1. We strive to make the Science Fair a positive experience for all children, hence we request the participant to bring an original project/idea. Please do not bring any purchased projects/models/experiments
  2. Do not bring any dangerous chemicals or biological substances as part of the project.
  3. All participants must bring their own material for experiments. Organizers will not provide any material
  4. All participants must be able to briefly explain(2 minutes) the science behind their project and its construction to the judges.
  5. The judging panel’s decision is final and no disputes will be entertained
  6. The Young-Scientist.in team will short list 20 projects which will be given an opportunity to be presented before the judging panel
  7. All participants will be given a participation certificate
