If you want students to participate in your school’s Science & Engineering Fair and for adults to support you during your fair, then you will need signups. Gauge whether online or paper signups will be most effective at your school. Consider that not all families have access to or are receptive to the use of internet tools. We’ve seen schools use online only, paper only, or the combination of the two.
Paper signups are easier for families to have in front of them over the long run. While online signups will save you loads of time and frustration when it comes to logistics. With the use of Google Classroom at schools, a Google Form can be a very effective tool. Other free online tools we’ve seen are Sign-up Genius and Survey Monkey.
