  • This Friday, February 21 - the Prince William- Manassas Regional Science and Engineering Fair registration site will closeLate registration is not an option and no unregistered projects will be permitted to compete at the event. Detailed instructions re: registration were emailed to principals and chairs on January 12, 2020.

Note: School coordinators are expected to log in into the registration site (using the same school-specific code) to ensure that all students eligible to participate in the regional fair have registered and appear in the database.

 

  • For high schools ONLY - all winning projects eligible to participate in the fair must be promoted in the Scienteer this Friday, February 21 - aka, coordinators must complete Step 4 (Select Winners) and Step 5 (Finalize Winners)  - so that we receive all required ISEF forms.
  • For middle schools ONLY - required forms for projects that involved human participants, vertebrate animals, biological materials, chemical or any hazardous materials or devices/procedures, must be provided to the regional fair via email (scanned), fax, or via PWCS courier by this Friday, February 21
  • For everyone: Please share with your students "hints for successful presentation at the regional fair" - it will be included in our handbook next year but for now, it's a stand-alone paper (attached). If possible, please help students with their 5 min "elevator" presentation for judges; especially with middle school participants - these young participants are often nervous "first-timers" 🙂 

Finally, a few important things about Friday, March 6 (Science Fair Eve/Set Up):

 

1) Please remind students that there is a "Sponsor Release" form that needs to be signed by students/parents and provided to us (we will have extra hard copies on hand);

2) Please remind student that NO personal identifiers (student name or/and school name) are allowed on the display board (and scientific journal or written report, if student is planning on having one for judges);

3) Check in for high school students will be in the room 1100 (turn left immediately after entering the KLC), where as check in tables for middle school students will be set up in the middle of the entrance, right behind the security desk;

4) Check in will be done by the project category, not by students' last names. If we change a category placement for any of your school's projects, you will be notified;

5) Judging for high school students will be in the room 1100 and for middle school students - in the atrium; and

6) The project set up will take place 4:30 - 7 p.m. If late or not able to come on March 6, students would be able to check in and set up their projects on the morning of the fair, as long as between 7:30-8:30 am.
