Dear Santa Clara County Teachers,

Some of your students may look to their parents for guidance in designing a science project. If the parents have little or no experience developing a science project, a Science Fair 101 presentation at your school might help.

Science Fair 101 demonstrates the science project basics for parents. The presentation is FREE, lasts around 30-45 minutes, is held in the evening and is appropriate for grades K-6.

sciencepalooza! is the annual science fair exclusively for students in the East Side Union High School District of San Jose. Approximately 1,000 students participate in the fair, held each year at the Santa Clara County Fairgrounds. Their science projects are judged by professionals from businesses, schools, and universities throughout Silicon Valley. The 16th annual sciencepalooza! will be held on Saturday, February 7, 2015.

SuperSchool Teacher Training Seminars

The Foundation periodically offers FREE grade-specific teacher training seminars that are designed and taught by teachers, tied to California's Science Content Standards, approved for Continuing Education Units and include a donation to the teacher's school of workshop materials!
