“The important thing is not to stop questioning. Curiosity has its own reason for existence. One cannot help but be in awe when he contemplates the mysteries of eternity, of life, of the marvelous structure of reality. It is enough if one tries merely to comprehend a little of this mystery each day.”

– Albert Einstein

Welcome to the 2021 Virtual Hackberry Hill Science Fair! This is a fun, non-competitive event sponsored by Hackberry Hill PTA.

Because of COVID-19 we have moved to an online format this year. You will create a presentation or poster on a topic of your choice and then create a video or voice over explaining your project. Fill out the registration form above to let us know you’re planning to participate, and to sign up for additional messages:

Here’s how the Virtual Science Fair works:

1. Think of a topic that you want to study and learn more about.

2. Do some research to find out what’s already known on that topic.

3. You will then create your project. If you are in grades K-3, you can create a demonstration that talks about what you learned, demonstrates a science concept, explains a piece of science equipment, etc. Or you can create an experiment to collect data on your topic and create a conclusion about your hypothesis. If you are in grades 4-5 you must create an experiment.

4. To make an experiment you should come up with a hypothesis and use the scientific method to collect some data on your topic. The data should help you to answer some question, your hypothesis, that you didn’t find the answer to in your reading.

5. Create a presentation that explains what you wanted to know, what you did to answer the question, and what you found out.

6. Record your presentation and fill out the turn-in form posted above. You will upload the recording to the form. Please keep all recordings under 1 GB in size. Have your project turned in by Monday, March 22, 2021.

7. Projects will be released on the “Projects” page on Saturday, March 27th. Feel free to share the link with whoever might be interested in your science project! You can use the search bar, either on the home page or on the projects page, to find your project or feel free to browse through to find a project that looks interesting to you.

8. We will also share the website with science students at Metro State University, who have agreed to be our judges for the Science Fair. Each student will receive feedback about their presentation biased on the rubric linked bellow. (The first link is for experiments, the second link is for all other projects)
