Hastings Science Fair

Hastings Science Fair will take place in a VIRTUAL format in 2021 — registration deadline is Thursday, January 28th, and the final video submission deadline is February 5th.

Registration is now closed.

Due to the increasing number of participants, we are not able to accommodate late registrations. If you have any questions or concerns, please connect with Lauren, Emily, or Andrea at sciencefair@hastings-pto.org.
Check out some Hastings Science Fair highlights here:

The Science Fair is a fun opportunity for students to design and perform a science experiment and then share it with other students at Hastings. Student participants will decide on the subject matter of the experiment, perform the experiments at home, and then create a display or slideshow explaining their work and results.

New virtual format for 2021: Each student scientist will create a short video (max. 4 minutes) in which they share their project on a display board or in a brief slide show, explaining their project and answering 4 Big Questions (see Science Fair Display and Presentation Information link below for more details). Students will upload their video to the Tribute platform by Friday, February 5th, and the final video showcase will be available for viewing on Friday, February 12th. This is not a competition, and participation in the Hastings Science Fair is optional. Each participating student scientist will receive an official Hastings Science Fair medal.

Instructions for uploading video presentations (deadline: Feb. 5th)
Students should upload their completed video presentations (4 min. max) to the following Tribute links. Note that due to the number of participants, there are two links: one for Grades K-2 and another for Grades 3-5. If members of the same household are working together on a project and are in different grades, the video should be uploaded to both URLs.
