Home arrow Teachers - February Packet

Dear Science Fair Sponsor,

Thank you for all you have done in the past months to prepare your students for the Region 11 Science Fair. You met deadlines, checked papers, encouraged your students and are to be congratulated on a job well done by both you and your students.

This section contains:

  • A listing of all your Project Numbers. Room numbers for papers will be given the day of the fair.
  • Schedule of Events.
  • A Map for the University of St. Francis.
  • Letters to be distributed to your project/paper session participants.
  • Checklists to be distributed to your project/paper session participants.
  • Project tags to be completed and placed on each project backboard.
  • A copy of the guidelines to give to your judges.

Please take some time to read all this material and share it with your students. Please pay careful attention to the Schedule of Events. Students need to be on time for their sessions. Judges need to be present for the meeting and are expected to judge both morning and afternoon sessions.

Competition can be difficult for our young participants. Adequate preparation can help to calm their fears. Please be sure that both students and you have signed all papers because failure to do this can lead to disqualification. To avoid tears (the students and ours), be sure each project student has a 1 m x 1 m card table and chair for their project.

Last, but, not least, sponsors are required to Safety Judge at the Regional Fair. There will be 3 times when your help will be needed:  7:00-7:45AM, 10:30-11:00AM, 1:30-2:00PM. Please report to the Safety Table at the entrance to the Gym for your instructions, stickers, and safety sheets at the beginning of all safety checks. If you notice anything that might have been missed, please inform the safety coordinator immediately. Although all of the abstracts and safety sheets have been checked for possible vertebrate and bacteria violations, please check all papers for student and sponsor signatures. Please know that this commitment and your expertise are greatly appreciated!

Again, our thanks to all of you who have made the Region 11 Science Fair such a positive experience. See you at the Fair!
