Part I: Teacher School STEM Fair General Information for the 2019-20 School Year. (Many of the things below are found on the Parent/Student School STEM Fair Information Page.)
- Each school needs to have its own 5th and/or 6th Grade STEM fair independent of the JSD STEM fair.
- Each teacher needs to register his/her class on line to enter students into the JSD STEM Fair so I know how many to expect to participate so I can get the number of respective judges. This registration link is found in Part II and above.
- Each parent needs to be given the JSD parent information paper that give guidelines and ideas on how to do a STEM Fair project for the school STEM fair found in Part VI.
- The teacher can use the PowerPoints found in Part III to teach the students how to do a school STEM Fair project and to know what the rules are up front so the projects aren't disqualified when chosen to compete in the JSD STEM Fair.
- 5th and 6th grades STEM fair packets are now on line on how to do a STEM fair project. They are below in Part IV.
- Special rules for entering a STEM Fair project in the School STEM Fair are: (If not followed, the project can be disqualified.)
- Each child must fill out the 2020 CUSF Elementary Entry Form and give it to his/her teacher before beginning his/her school STEM fair project. (This form is found in Part V below.)
- If a student uses people, animals, controlled substances, or hazardous devices in his/her science fair project, special professional people must approve it for safety. (Papers are in the 2020 CUSF Elementary Entry Form.)
- If a student grows bacteria, mold, fungi, or viruses special professional people must approve it for safety. (Papers are in the 2020 CUSF Elementary Entry Form.)
- If a student grows bacteria, mold, fungi, or viruses they must be grown in a lab and not at home. Growing it at home will disqualify the project from competition.
- If a student uses children under 18, they must get written permission from the parents of those being tested. Paper are in Part VII below.
- If a student uses adults 18 years or older, they must get written permission from that adult. Papers are in part VII below.
- Don't use any previous STEM fair packets or forms prior to this school year. Use only forms that have 2019-20 on them. Some information is new or became updated from prior years.
- Call Paul Nance at 801-244-6479 or email him at email@example.com if you have questions about the STEM fair project process or the rules.
- Numbers of students teachers cans choose to send on to the JSD STEM Fair:
- Two winners can be chosen from each class if Scientific Method projects are the only projects sent.
- Three winners can be chosen from each class if at least one project is an Engineering project or one project is a Computer project.
- Four winners can be chosen from each class if at least one project is an Engineering project and one project is a Computer project. The other two can be any project they want to send.
- All school STEM fairs must be completed by Friday, February 14, 2020.
- All school winners chosen for the JSD District STEM need to be given a letter from the district about the information packet about the district STEM fair from their teachers. That letter is below in Part XII.
