The PEI Science Fair Committee has put together a list of helpful hints for your science fair project and your experience at the PEI Science Fair.
- Please do not bring any live animals or plants to the fair ( take many pictures and display them on your backboard)
- Items that are shed from animals such as hair, fur, feathers quills, hides are not permitted.
- Please do not bring any mold, bodily fluids ( blood, urine) or living tissues to the fair.
- Cultures in petri dishes are not permitted.
- No open flames are permitted (candles or heating devices such as hot plates).

- A small amount of water for your project is allowed however please do not bring items such as aquariums to fill with water.

- If you need electricity for your project/computer, it would be helpful to bring a short ( 5 or 6 feet) extension cord. Please ensure that the extension cord is properly grounded.
- Students in grades 7 through 12 should have a log book to show the judges . This is an important part of your project’s mark (10%). This website has suggestions for setting up and using your logbook.
- Bring a water bottle and also bring something to do while you are waiting for the judges as you will be at your project for an extended period of time. ( book, phone, video game, homework, schoolwork etc).
- A poster/science fair picture contest will be held during the fair. You can bring your own colour pencils/crayons to the fair however some will also be available at the fair.
