The Science Fair has become a competitive sport and well-coached kids increase their odds of success. This blog is designed to help parents, teachers, and other mentors become better coaches for students wanting to successfully compete in a Science Fair. Throughout the website, you’ll see many sports-themed analogies because I want to connect science with something that might be more familiar – sports. Although the blog targets parents of students in 3rd through 8th grade, the information will be useful for parents of all first time participants (i.e., “the rookies”) regardless of grade level.

    Hi Maille,

    Great site!! Do you have any tips for the kid that wants to be part of a science fair but their school does not have one? How can they find out about them? I have a 9 year old “Caroline” who has two engineers as parents……..makes for interesting dinner conversation.

      Absolutely! Usually a student whose school does not have a fair (or a home schooled student) is allowed to go directly to the Regional Fair level. Go to the website for your county’s school system and look for details on the Regional and State Fairs. Find out which of the schools is hosting and there should be a contact number/email for the Regional coordinator. You can also ask her Science Teacher to get you the contact number and tell her you are interested in participating (she might need to approve the project). If you’re lucky, maybe the teacher will coordinate a fair for the school. Here is the Anne Arundel County website. It has links to the forms on the right hand side. Let me know if you need help with the paperwork. – Maille

    You are welcome. I hope Albert enjoyed his project and I am glad to hear he enjoyed the website. Feel free to send me a photo of his work because I will be starting a section (soon) where I will post success stories.
