Science Fair – School Tours

Teachers are welcome to bring their classes to see the Science Fair on Monday, April 6, beginning at 10:00 am. Participating in a Class Visit will allow students to:

  • Interact with students who are presenting their projects at the fair
  • Participate in a “Treasure Hunt”

The “Treasure Hunt” requires students to go around the Science Fair and look for the answers to a set of questions related to the fair and the projects. A teacher could decide to use this as a marked class exercise. A marking key for the list of questions can be provided on request.

Teachers must register their intent to bring their classes with the Science Fair Chair by clicking on the link at the bottom of this page and giving the information requested in the form.

  • How many students and accompanying adults will come, and what grades?
  • Does the teacher want to do the treasure hunt, and if so, do they want to use it for grades (so do they need the key)?

The teachers need to know that

  • We stagger arrival times in ten minute increments (so they don’t all arrive at the same time),
  • We try to accommodate their preference for arrival times, but we will accommodate those coming from out of town first.
  • When the teachers arrive, they should sign in at the entrance (volunteers will be there with the sign-in sheet).
  • They will need to bring their own clipboards and pencils.
  • And finally, younger participants will be on the first floor, older (usually grade 7 and up) will be in the basement.
