Helpful Hints

 Helpful Hints

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.

  • Cultures in petri dishes are not permitted.

  • No open flames are permitted (candles or heating devices such as hot plates).

  • Any devices that can create sparks should not be brought to the science fair.

  • Moving parts such as belts or blades should be encompassed in a shell or frame.

  • 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).
