4. Teacher’s Name
DO NOT bring as part of the display:
Anything living, including microorganisms, such as bacteria or mold
Food of any kind
Hazardous or caustic (burn producing) materials
Latex gloves, balloons, etc.
We reserve the right to make an on-site decision about whether or not items may be displayed.
Neither school district personnel, nor volunteers, are responsible for your display or materials. Usual security precautions will be provided, but we cannot guarantee the safety of personal items left overnight or unattended during the fair. Consider whether valuable items are essential to sharing the project (ex: computer, one of a kind item, etc). If they are, bringing them on the day of judging. We strongly encourage students to use photographs for display purposes and leave everything else at home.
If you need power for your project, be sure to note it during registration. You must bring your own extension cord. Plugs are very limited and located only on walls.
*** If you can't deliver your project during the check-in time, ask someone to bring it to the fair for you. If someone else brings your project, make sure you give them paper copies of the required forms.
February 15th: THE FAIR
8:00 – 8:30 Judge orientation
8:30 – 12:30 Projects will be judged. Students must be present.
4:00 – 5:30 Projects must be picked up during this time period.
Students will be interviewed 1-2 times by judging pairs, depending on the number of judges available. This is an effort to maximize the judges' time and minimize the time a student is away from class. Parents should NOT be near the students during judging.
What to bring:
Students will be judged over the course of 1-3 hours. Students must stay within eyesight of their project while waiting to be judged. Small electronic games WITH HEADPHONES are permitted as long as they do not interfere with the event. There will be no WiFi connectivity.
Parents are responsible for transportation to and from the fair. It is important that students have a parent/adult contact number while at the fair. Ecker Hill students will be bussed to / from the fair during the school day.
All projects must be picked up between 4:00 - 5:30. The safety of projects remaining after 5:30 cannot be guaranteed.
Winners will be announced at each school on February 16.
The top projects from the District fair will be invited to participate in the University of Utah Science & Engineering Fair (USEF) March 20-22, 2018. Students chosen to advance will receive additional information about registering for USEF.
Thank you to all the volunteers and to the Park City Education Foundation for their generous donation of time and funding to make this fair possible!
