Kid Chemist Science Fair


Fair is a fun and competitive event, hosted by Kid Chemist. The purpose of this science fair is to provide numerous benefits and scholarships to students, which encourage their educational and social development. We want students to reach their creative side and create hands-on experiments. Perhaps one of the most valuable benefits is the chance to show, explain, and talk about their projects to others. It’s rewarding for fellow students, parents, teachers, and community members to have an opportunity to see and appreciate their many weeks of hard work. Because science fairs also offer judging, students are motivated to strive for excellence and understand what worked well in their projects and where they can improve. Science fair participants are able to:

  • Create their own learning experiences and innovations, just as scientists do in the real world.
  • Design experiments/display boards to communicate the stories of their science projects.
  • Participate as a community and support and encourage their fellow students at the fair.
  • Teach students to be independent and teach themselves.
  • Interact with adults and improve presentation skills by answering questions from visitors.
  • Receive public recognition and scholarships for their future educational career.
