  • Each school needs to have its own 5th and 6th Grades 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.
  • 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. (It will be ready the first week of September right after Labor Day, 2018.)
  • 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. (It will be ready the first week of September right after Labor Day, 2018.)
