Each Weekly Email Includes:
1. Your Weekly Planning Step and Ideas on How to Implement
Whether you’ve planned a Science Fair before or not, it’s not always easy to figure out what needs to be done and when. We break everything up into tasks that need to be completed up to three full months before your fair. From securing a location to getting buy-in from the school administrators to finding judges, all you need to know is found here.
2. Weekly Coaching Tips for Parents
What would the Science Fair be without participation? It’s not always easy to get everyone excited about your Science Fair, but with our pre-written communications, you’ll have one less thing to think about. Each week, you’ll receive a tip on how to engage both parents and students during your Science Fair season.
3. Weekly Inspiring Tips for Students
Sometimes just getting started is the hardest step for students. Inspire them through weekly announcements that empower them to innovate!
Visual 14 Week Milestones
You can enroll and download materials anytime up to 2 weeks before your fair date; however, ideally, to receive the full benefits of the program you should enroll any time 14 weeks or more before your fair date.
You’ll get all materials in emailed content and links.
The current material is geared for elementary school and middle school students. Check back with us in the Spring of 2020 for grade-level banded materials: K–2, 3–5, 6–8, & 9–12.
We’re getting there. In the Fall of 2019, we’ll be beta piloting an IMPLEMENT package that includes creating a personalized webpage for your school and custom communication pieces populated with information about your school’s Science & Engineering Fair.
No, we support your school’s Fair Organizer(s) step-by-step over a 14-week time period (or fewer depending on when you sign up for the program). We do this through the weekly emails and, on a more personalized level, with the Weekly Fair Organizer Q&A Live Teleconference. What we provide is the equivalent of a couple of volunteers’ work by creating resources and communication pieces for your fair.
Each weekly email has three sections of tips:
- Fair Organizer Milestone and Tips for Success
- Parent Tips for Effectively Coaching their Kids
- Inspiring Student Tips
You will begin to receive emails the Sunday of the 14th week (3 months) before the fair date you enter, or later if you enroll within the 14 weeks prior to your fair. You will continue to receive weekly emails through the week of the fair date. We will send follow-up emails after your fair date requesting your feedback about our program and participation at your school. Your feedback is critical for sustaining our sponsorships.

We are sorry, but we are a slim operation and simply don’t have the staff to do site visits for this particular program. We’d be happy to answer any questions you have about any of our programs – just contact us.
Nope. It’s all free – no hidden gimmicks. We are able to provide you with our high-quality, low-cost programs because our costs are offset by grants and our generous partners and donors.
