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 how to participate in the GSDSEF as well as 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. 

Experienced SLB members are available at these workshops to work with you on an individual basis - to answer your specific questions based on your own project.


For 2021-2022, SLB will be hosting most workshops online.
