27/8/2014 - Last minute info packs are now available for students and teachers for 2014! We will also be sending out the voluntary photo permission form for parents. Please check the time registration starts (no early projects please) and make sure you know the times the students are expected to be at the venue on Judging day - this is a little different from last year.
Registration from 5pm on Thursday evening.
Don’t forget to have your
safety form for all signed and
attached to your project.
20/8/2014 - Just a week to go and the last minute project fine tuning is well under way. Don’t forget to download the Safety form for all and get your teacher to sign it. Your school name also goes on the back of your project, not on the front! All the best for the competition, we know you have worked hard. We’re prepared to be amazed at what you have discovered and built.
29/6/2014 - The entry date for schools and individuals is the 18th of August. Teachers can get entry information on the Teacher Info page. Students from non-competing schools should contact us via the Facebook page.
15/5/2014 - It’s Term Two and students are well under way on their Fair projects. About three months to go before the school judging begins at the beginning of Term Three to determine who progresses to the Auckland Fair. Don’t forget to read the Student Info here at Scifair and if you have further questions head on over to our Facebook page.
11/03/2014 - Each new post here (and probably some other ones) will also be on our Facebook page. Schools should make sure they are registered by clicking the link found on the teacher info page. We are also looking to support some independent students so if your school isn’t involved don’t give up! And finally, committee members - the meeting dates are posted in the timeline.
23/02/2014 - Put your thinking caps on the 2014 Science and Technology Fair is back. Download the Information books and have a read through the website. Check back regularly as news and updates come to hand. We’re not Google, but maybe their video can give you an idea about what we are about and where your project can lead.
