The Wyoming State Science Fair (WSSF) provides a forum for Wyoming student scientists to share their research. The State Science Fair encourages students of Wyoming grades 6-12 to plan, organize, research, prepare and present a project of their interest. Participation in the Fair engages students in real-life science experiences, interact with professionals in the field, and review and apply of relevant research. Students may receive awards, scholarships and recognition, plus have the opportunity to attend the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair (ISEF), the largest pre-college celebration of science, in May.
A science fair project can vary from running a controlled experiment to proposing a new theory based on library or experimental research to developing a new concept, invention, program or design.
The Fair Coordinator is available to answer questions, provide professional development, lead science project workshops for teachers, students and local mentors for students on their projects.
To attend the Wyoming State Science Fair, students MUST compete in a REGIONAL FAIR. The WSSF unites these winners and allows them to share their research with University and community professionals and experts within the various categories.
Science fair judges evaluate based on the student grasp of the scientific process, creativity, diligent project work, including research, project solving, analyzing results and critical thinking and clarity of presentation.
