Participants can drop by at their leisure and try their hand at an experiment.

All students should expect to have their projects examined by 3 different judges, most of whom are research scientists, engineers and science students. In addition to the competition judges, there will be specialty prize judges visiting select projects throughout the day. There are many special prizes donated from local businesses, government, and community groups, and these judges will be looking for projects that they wish to reward with prize money.
