How to STEAM Fair 2021
Step 1: Choose a topic and develop a research question or engineering design problem.
For a Nearpod Lesson to help with choosing a STEAM Fair topic, visit nearpod.com and enter the code: ZRTKJ
If you still need help after the Nearpod Lesson, please use the resources below.
Generally, scientific method projects start with a question you want to answer and
engineering design projects start with a problem you want to build something to fix.
Video about engineering design (Crash Course kids have great videos about engineering and each step in additional videos)
Step 2: Once you have decided on the type of project, you can begin planning, experimenting, and designing.
Here are some graphic organizers that might help start you on your way.
Step 3: Assemble your science fair board.
Step 4: Practice presenting your science fair project. In grades 4-6 Indian Hills' judging criteria is based off the Salt Lake District Rubric for Science & Engineering Fair Presentations. Click on the button below to get a better idea of the judging criteria.
If you are in grades 5th-6th, you must complete a permission slip and turn it in with your science fair board. Click on the button below to download and print the permission slip.
