The Student Leadership Board provides workshops to help middle school and high school students develop a successful science, engineering, math or computer science fair project.


Workshop topics take you through the entire science fair process and the scientific method/engineering principles from start to finish - from coming up with a project idea, to putting together your science notebook, to designing your poster board, and to finally preparing you for  judging. Tutorials are given on how to write a hypothesis/problem statement, how to collect, graph, and analyze data, and how to write an effective abstract.


Peer mentors are available at these workshops to work with you on an individual basis - to answer your specific questions. At the final workshop, peer mentors help you to prepare for the judging process - they offer advice on how to present and interact effectively with judges, and take you through several judging simulations as practice.


Student Workshops and Activities are being scheduled for the 2020-2021 school year. Please check this page again for more information.
