  • Projects should be designed and created by students at home.
  • Some adult guidance is allowed, but judges will expect students to demonstrate that the work is their own.
  • Projects do not have to be completed before the school fair. They must be mostly complete and students should be able to explain the goal and demonstrate/describe the process that will be used to complete the project.
  • Please note that with some of the projects, the laptop/computer/device that the project is/was created on, will need to be brought to school for the judges to view the process/project.
