Science Fair Website

Science Fair Director: Eva Abeyta

County Science fair next year will be held on January 18-19, 2019 at the Los Alamos Middle School.  A couple of points to keep in mind are:

1)  Summer is a great time to start thinking about a science fair project.

2)  There will be no late judging offered next year.

3)  Not all students will receive a monetary prize but will be guaranteed a wonderful t-shirt and a certificate of participation.

New Mexico Junior Academy of Science

Great Resources for Science Fair Projects:  
The Junior Academy of Science and the NM Science Teachers Association are the sponsors the Scientific Paper Competition for students grades 6 – 12. The competitions are held in conjunction with the Regional and State Science Fairs. There are two divisions, 1) 6 – 8 is the Junior Division and 2) grades 9 – 12 is the Senior Division. Cash prizes are awarded to the winners at the Regional and State levels by the NM Academy of Science and the NM Science Teachers Association.

Regional winners will advance to the State Competition.

Why participate in the Science Fair?
It is not only fun but gives students the opportunity to apply the knowledge they have and to add to that knowledge in a project that interests them. They are able to combine knowledge from different areas to make a complete project. This is not just practice but a real application to real world problems.

Who can participate?
Grades K – 3:   Students can participate in a class project and enter in the ELEMENTARY CLASS DIVISION
Grades 4 – 5:   Students can enter individual projects and compete in the ELEMENTARY DIVISION
Grades 6 – 8:   Students can enter individual projects and compete in the JUNIOR DIVISION

Grades 9 – 12: Students can enter individual projects and compete in the SENIOR DIVISION
