New look, same mission for Chatham County Schools Science Fair

Virtual Science Fair English

PITTSBORO — The look of the Chatham County Schools Science fair has changed but not its mission of having students developing questions about the world and answering them using scientific tools and methods. 

This edition of the science fair is virtual. Students will share projects through Google Slides or PowerPoint presentations. They’ll use the Zoom platform to interact with judges.

There are no school-level science fairs this time around. Students from kindergarten through twelfth grade may submit an application for a project by Dec. 4. Each school has a science fair site coordinator, who will provide specifics and resources along the way. 

Group projects of two or three students are allowed, but the district strongly discourages those in the interest of safety. Parents and guardians would make that decision and assume the responsibility of students adhering to safety guidelines.

The science fair culminates with a virtual awards ceremony the district will broadcast live Jan. 26. LearnMore
