It is time for the Redmond Elementary School Science Fair! Start thinking of a topic, gather your materials, make your hypothesis, test your hypothesis, and prepare to share your discoveries using a display board and a model or working experiment!

Registration is open till February 2nd and completed project is due on Thursday, March. 7th

Please register here!

All individual or group participants are welcome! Every HAWK Scientist will receive a participation certificate!

For group participants, please use the same team's name during the registration process so that the PTSA has a count of projects for display.



As you think of a topic, here are some considerations.  

• Since this is a home-based project, you should get started right away. 
• Use your imagination to come up with a subject that is interesting to you. 
• Ask a scientific question, do research, come up with a hypothesis, and build a model that will help you answer your question. 
• Some things you can build using your original ideas - models, Toymaker-style toys, robots, simple machines, circuits, terraria, instruments, patterns, even a sandwich - if it can help you answer a scientific question! 
• Things that don’t qualify: anything built following packaged instructions, anything with liquids, flammables, hazardous materials, catapults, weapons of any kind. No use of any liquids on the final day. If the experiment needs liquids, the same can be done at home and demonstrated via pictures or a video on an electronic device. 
• Each project should include a poster board/tri-fold poster with your project name and an age-appropriate write-up that summarizes the student’s work and uses the scientific method of inquiry, and a relevant model that answers a scientific question.  
• We encourage students to use three-sided display boards (available at Target, Dollar Tree, Ben Franklin, Fred Meyer).   
• Poster boards are fine as long as they are free-standing. 
• Dimensions of models should not exceed that of the poster board. The model should fit within the width of the trifold or poster board. 

Note to Parents: You are your child’s guide, mentor, and coach, but this project belongs to your child - so please let them lead. 

• Failure is an integral part of the scientific process. We welcome projects that have a hypothesis, and a model or experiment that was genuinely attempted, but the participant discovered the hypothesis was proven wrong. We also encourage showing pictures of different experiments or models that failed before reaching the final stage.


Hello scientists!!

We are looking forward to seeing you on Thursday, March 7th at the Science Fair at Redmond Elementary Gym! To help you in this quest here are some guidelines and important information:

  • Project submitted must be the original work of the student.
  • The project should be presented on a display board and can be accompanied by a model or working experiment.
  • Each student’s display board must have their name and project name on the display.
  • Use the Scientific Process “Problem Statement, Research, Hypothesis, Experiment materials, Observation, Data Collection and Results, and Final Conclusion”.
  • No use of any liquids on the final day. If the experiment needs liquids, the same can be done at home and demonstrated via pictures or a video on an electronic device.
  • Final completed display boards and experiments must be brought to school on Thursday, March 7th.
  • Student has the responsibility of setting up the experiment from 5PM to 6PM in the Redmond Elementary Gym. In the Gym area, look for the table with your grade level. Spaces at each table will be assigned based on a first come first serve basis.
  • To participate in the fair's "SCIENCE PROJECTS SCAVENGER HUNT" that is open to the audience, participants should prepare one (1) question (along with the answer) that you want others to know or learn based on your science project.
  • Science Fair opens to all at 6:30PM until 8PM. Student projects must remain displayed until at least 7:45PM.
  • Each student must take home their project with them by 8PM and clean up their tables.
  • Each student is responsible for their own experiments and items.  Please take home everything you bring!
  • If your project is fragile or if you do not want observers to touch or handle your project, please add a sign that says in bold “Do Not Touch”. You must stay with your project for the duration of the science fair, aside from a short break to view other projects.
