PS3 Science Fair will take place on Saturday, April 21, 2018 in the Auditorium and Gymeteria

This comes one day before Earth Day 2018, which reflects the spirit of Science Fair as a celebration of curiosity and wonder about our place on earth and in the universe!

The Fair will run between 1:30pm and 4:30pm.  Student presentations and adult demonstrations will take place at scheduled times through the afternoon.  

The Fair will feature entries on experiments and demonstrations by PS3 students. Students can work on their own or as part of a team.  Teams can be organized either by students themselves or with their class.  The Fair will also feature demonstrations by parents and other members of the PS3 community in the sciences. This will not be a competitive fair, but all students with entries will receive a certificate for their participation.

The Fair is being organized by the PS3 PTA Science Committee (SciComm).

Below you will find information on how students can register an entry in the Fair and guidance on how to do a science fair project.  Please submit your entries by April 7 using the form linked below.

Parents! We are looking for more volunteers to help out on the day of the Fair! If you are interested, please send an email to the address below.

Register an Entry in the Fair

We have an online form that parents or teachers can complete to register their children or a team that they are supervising.  We need to have all entries registered by April 7 (for paper entries, please send it in with your child by April 9, Monday), so that we can arrange enough table space for all entries.

Before completing the form, be sure that you have the following:

  • Student name (or names, if it is a team project) and grade(s); if it is a class project, indicate "class project" and the grade.
  • Name and contact information of the parent or teacher who is supervising the entry.
  • Proposed scientific "Question" (see Guidelines below).
Please note that the organizing
committee will review all Science Fair entries to be sure that they are appropriate in terms of safety, materials, age-appropriate content, and other practical considerations.  We can only accept entries that are appropriate in these ways.  If need be, the organizing committee will be in touch to suggest how to revise the entry to meet these guidelines.

The Science Fair committee will then confirm the entries with all of the parents or teachers who complete entry forms.
