Registration Deadline: Midnight, Friday, February 23, 2018

This event is FREE! Homeschoolers will work on a project of their choice at home, with parent supervision.

REGIONALS: Please note, due to declining participation in the Western Nevada Regional Science & Engineering Fair, it has been suspended after 50 years of operations.  Unfortunately, this means both the resources on their website and the next level of competition is no longer available.

Age recommendation: 5 - 18 years

Grades K-3: Can choose to do research on a state, create an invention, or complete a science project –
State: each student will read a book about a state then make a tri-fold poster with information about the state.
Invention: each student will create his/her own invention, make a model of it using items around the house and make a tri-fold poster explaining the invention.

Science project: each student will present a tri-fold poster accompanied by a scientific notebook & report.

(This section will not be judged. Every entrant will receive a participation ribbon and will learn a great deal by participating.)



Grades 4-12: Will do a science project – each student will present a tri-fold poster accompanied by a scientific notebook & report. (This section will be judged. The grades will be split into 3 groups: 4-6, 7-9, 10-12)

Qualified Judges Needed:
We will need at least 3 judges per grade group for the science fair. They can overlap as long as they are not related to entrants. Each judge should have a basic science, technology, or engineering background. Know a professor or grad student at UNR; are you or your spouse qualified; do you have a local friend, neighbor or relative who is qualified? If you have someone in mind, please contact Alicia Hansen.

NOTE: Experimenting with vertebrate animals, humans, or animal tissues or organs is NOT recommended.
