You may work by yourself or with one other partner. Group projects are judged in the grade category corresponding to the highest grade of the students (e.g., a 5th and 6th grade student work on a project together, the project is judged in the 6th grade group). The science fair is a competition, and comparing a single student to a group of 3, 4 or even more students is not fair, therefore, no more than two students may work together on a project. Class projects are only eligible for class recognition awards.
No. A collection does not satisfy the essential steps of THE SCIENTIFIC METHOD. What is the scientific method? Learn more!
A demonstration lacks sufficient experimental methods. Adding Mentos to Dr Pepper does demonstrate a reaction but it falls short of science because you have not altered a variable and observed the result. Now if you altered and controlled the fluid temperature and then measured the change in eruptive force then that would be an experiment – but please – we see that every year too.
No. We have very little time from the end of normal registration till we start judging. You may get a participation ribbon but your project will probably not be reviewed.
