Science Fair Information

science fair logo

Science Fair is an integral part of Clark-Shaw's hands-on, inquiry-based STEM curriculum. Students in all grades will plan, research, and conduct an individual science fair project during 1st and 2nd quarters and present their findings in 3rd quarter.

Failure to turn in a science fair project may result in a failing grade during 3rd quarter as well as adversely affecting the student's science grade during 1st and 2nd quarters. The required math and language arts components will also affect grades in those classes.

Students and parents are encouraged to monitor all science fair required components and their due dates to ensure that students remain on track and successful. All students will receive an information packet in their science fair classes. These can also be found in the documents section of this page. Parents and students are invited to Science Fair Information Meetings on Tuesday, August 23 to learn more about what is required for each grade and to ask questions of science teachers.
