The project must revolve around a question within the STEAM fields, which is very broad, meaning the limits are endless as to what you can ask and research. For example, your question could be; “Is it Slime or is it Putty?”, “Why is Sci-Art different from regular art”?, “What does the future of AI technology look like?”, “Why is a 3D printed heart better than current replacements”...etc. It can be as simple or complex as you would like to make it. All projects must have some form of explanation/background information attached to it in the form of a project display board, poster board, or computer display. Each group is required to fill out a project proposal form and communicate with the fair committee when necessary for status updates. If you are a parent helping your child with their project you are included as a supporting member. All participants will be required to attend presentation day. Proposals/Entry Forms are due May 15th, 2019 BY 5PM VIA EMAIL. You will receive confirmation of your proposal being received and reviewed by May 18th & May 19th, 2019 via email.
