I am a parent/teacher/mentor of a child doing a science fair project. What help can I give?
You can give any help you want, however the student will be judged using several interviews designed to test the student's knowledge of the project. In many ways it is like a sport where you can coach and assist your child to the limit of your resources but eventually the child has to play the game without you. There are eligibility reguirements and rules and regulations which you should check on the Fair Information Page
How can I judge my own project and improve it?
- The Judging Sheet should help you.
- Perhaps you could print the material and have someone "judge" your project with you.
- Sometimes students are disqualified because their projects are too big or break the safety rules.
