Where to Start!

Please note that you do not have to have competed in a school science fair to enter this regional science fair. Any student in the region can and is encouraged to participate!

Students, on this page (and using the links above) you will find what you need to know about the science fair, eligibility, a guide on how to start your project and how to register for the science fair. Please go through the information on this page and follow the links to get as much help as you can to help you on your project. You will find essential information and helpful hints here, so please read carefully and thoroughly!

Step-by-Step Guide

Here is a simple guide on what you need to do to have a successful science fair project:

  1. Pick your topic. This is possibly the most difficult part of the project! This process can start with a question such as “What would happen if…..” or “I wonder why ……” and then build your project from this. Check out the links on our Getting Started page for some references to help you with this step.
  2. Research your topic. Learn more from the internet, the library, your science teacher, and other resources.
  3. Check the science fair regulations on the ‘Getting Started’ page and in the FLASF Student and Teacher Preparation Package or ESFLA Trousse d’info (see links above). Pay particular attention to the Saftey and Ethics sections in the Project Information , because you may need to discuss your work with FLASF and/or your teacher BEFORE you start your project work.
  4. Make a time table and plan your experimental work.
  5. Carry out your experiment. Keep detailed notes of your experiments and measurements and track your data in a journal or log book.
  6. Analyze your results. Draw conclusions, and write up your results.
  7. Register for FLASF and be sure to do this before the deadline!
  8. Prepare a project display board for display at the Fair with your project details. See the Display Board Page for details on what goes into a display board. Pay attention to all the display and safety rules!
  9. See you at the Science Fair! See the Schedule Page for dates, schedule and venue.
