    Students must be accompanied by a parent or other responsible adult who can assist them with the workshop activities. One adult per family or per group of students is sufficient. Please register each student individually. The rosters below show children who are currently registered for the workshops.
     Each workshop opens with an informational presentation on what makes a good science fair project and how to lay out a project board. Scientists then guide participants through simple sample experiments using the scientific method, perform mock reviews and brainstorm ideas for participants' own science fair projects.

Weather policy: Please don't feel obliged to come if you feel the roads are too unsafe to travel. We will assess the weather two hours before the workshop. If we decide we must cancel the class because of weather, we will post it on our website and send an email and/or phone to warn you of the cancellation.  If Rochester Public Schools are closed, and/or they cancel after school activities due to inclement weather, the workshop will be cancelled.
