Sunset Ridge Science and Technology Fair Guidelines

The Final Presentation:
Tips, Rules and Safety Regulations

  • Have print large enough to read from a distance.
  • Be sure you understand all the words and terms you use in your project.
  • Report sample size. How many things or how many times did you repeat your experiment?
  • Present your data using averages, not individual measurements. Also, don't present the data more than once. Use only one type of graph to present one variable or your project will be confusing.
  • Wall space is not available for the exhibit.
  • No running water is available.
  • Electrical outlets are not available for the exhibit. If batteries are used they must be in good condition. All wiring, switches and metal parts carrying current must be properly selected for load requirements and adequate insulation. No exposed wires, switches, joints, or uninsulated fasteners will be permitted.
  • Push buttons and levers must be mounted securely on exhibits. They can't be attached to the table or wall.
  • Humane treatment of animal subjects is expected and required. Any experiment which involves animal subjects must be approved before it is done.
  • Anything which could be hazardous to public safety is prohibited. This includes live disease-causing organisms, syringes, open flames, dangerous chemicals, and highly combustible materials.
  • Please ensure that bacteria, mold spores, or other things that could cause an allergic reaction are covered and contained. Food must be covered.
  • Videos must be approved by the Science Fair Committee at least a week before the Science Fair.

HERE ARE TWO WAYS TO DISPLAY YOUR PROJECT. BE SURE TO INCLUDE ALL THE STEPS IN THE SCIENTIFIC METHOD.
