3-5 Science Fair Rubric

All projects are scored with the top part of the rubric. Then the top 10-15 projects (depends on how many ties we have) will move on to an interview round. The top 3 projects overall will be selected to go to the county science fair in January. Last year, there was space available to send an extra project so we may be allowed to send an additional project if we get special permission.
