There have been some changes made to the judging process due to feedback from previous years fairs'. Projects will be judged on science OR technology. This is important to note as students must tick on the entry form 'science' or 'technology', and consequently only apply for the Special Category Awards that are applicable.
Additionally this year, the judging process also includes 'sustainability awareness' within the judging criteria. Students will need to be aware/conscious of this throughout their investigation.
We have some new sponsors this year with special prizes, look at the criteria for the Special Category Awards, some of them are quite specific, meaning fewer projects can apply and consequently provide higher chances of winning!
We are really trying to encourage more technology projects so it would be great to have more technology teachers involved, contact us if you're interested in volunteering. We also have mentors available to help in many areas, contact us if you or your students need some guidance and help.
IT IS IMPORTANT THAT THE STUDENT READS THE ENTRY FORM PROPERLY AND CLEARLY PROVIDES ALL THE INFORMATION REQUIRED. THE ENTRIES ARE PRCESSED BY ONE PERSON AND THIS CAN BE A VERY LENGTHY PROCESS IF THE FORMS ARE NOT COMPLETED CORRECTLY - ESPECIALLY THE SPECIAL CATEGORY AWARDS SECTION.
