Register to Participate


All young scientists wishing to display a project at the Science Fair must register by March 5th.  You will need to provide a few key details about the project on the registration page.


Students may work on their project independently, or with a partner who is also actively enrolled at Grand Ridge. Registration has now closed for 2024. Thank you to all those who signed-up! 


Projects Should be Student Driven


Doing a science project doesn't have to be difficult, complicated, or expensive! 

Need help getting started?  Review our guides:


Choosing a Topic

Project Guidelines & Tips


As much as possible, project ideas and effort should come from the students. Parents should use their best judgment when deciding how much to help. For example, parents must obviously get involved when there is a potential safety issue. Also, for the younger kids, parents may need to provide some guidance. But it is important that the kids be able to call the project their own.


Project Drop-Off


Students need to drop projects off between 5 - 8 pm on Tuesday, March 12th. You will select a one-hour drop-off slot during registration. A parent or guardian must accompany the student during the drop-off process. 


During the time slot they select, student will bring their project and set up their display.  They will then present their project to a volunteer judge and leave the projects on display overnight and through the Science Fair event.  


We kindly ask that each parent contribute a few minutes of time to evaluate another student's project during drop-off. Don't worry, no scientific background needed & sample questions will be provided, then you just note quick feedback on the student's project. This will ensure all student’s work gets the attention deserved without a significant time commitment required for volunteers.


This is not a competition, just a showcase of projects. 


Project Pick-Up 


Projects must be taken home on the evening of the Science Fair


Feedback and Awards


Our science fair is non-competitive, as our goal is to encourage scientific exploration and discovery and promote a deep lifelong passion for science. Each participant will have an opportunity to briefly present their project to a reviewer at project drop-off.  All participants will receive a certificate and ribbon.


Parent Scientists Can Participate Too!


Parents: If you love science as much as your kids do, and you're jealous that they get to have all the fun, not to worry! We need a few of you to put together your own science-related exhibits and demonstrations to add excitement to the Science Fair. No need to sweat: we won't put you in front of the judges, or make you document your procedures. If you're interested, please contact our Science Fair chair.


Volunteers Needed!


A big event like the Science Fair wouldn't be possible without the help of numerous volunteers. We have all kinds of different jobs to be done, so if you think you can spare some time, we would love your help.

Please sign up now!



The Science Fair is a bi-annual event that alternates with the Cultural Fair.
