Coordinating a Science Fair

Are you a non-science person in charge of planning a science fair? No need to panic—your job is to coordinate the fair, not do chemistry. You’ll find all the tools and tips you need on this website.

Are you a science teacher planning your first-ever science fair? You’ll need top-notch organizational skills, or a trusty assistant or co-chair (maybe both!) to help keep everything in check. Find someone with complementary skills and you’ll be a winning team. Often, this is a good opportunity to bring in a parent you trust who can commit to the time and who will be unbiased in working with students and other parents.

Regardless of your expertise or comfort level, look to the Science Fair Coordinator’s Checklist to steer you through all the necessary steps.
