Science Fair Resources|Science Posse

Did you know top two prizes at the Intel ISEF International Science and Engineering Fair are scholarships worth $75,000 and $50,000? The first step: participating in the Wyoming State Science Fair. Let the Science Posse help you get there!

WSSF Logo

The Science Posse is dedicated to helping students, parents and teachers create scientifically sound science fair projects. There are wonderful things to learn from doing a science fair project, both about the topic and about yourself .

Critical elements of a successful science fair project include:

  • A clear understanding of the role each team member (students, teachers and parents) has in the project. Although the detailed descriptions of these roles on the pages below are not set in stone, they have been suggested by scientists, teachers and students as being extremely valuable in the process of doing science fair projects.

  •  A sound knowledge of the process necessary to complete the project. This includes  the time commitment, the paperwork and the scientific method.

Although there are definitely going to be some challenges and speedbumps along the way, the journey is worth it. (Just ask some successful science fair students.)


If there are specific questions about a project, Ask the Science Posse!
The Science Posse is also available for Science Fair Consultations and Mentoring.

Prepare for the Fair, a Video by Kevin Temmer

Kevin Temmer recently graduated from the International Baccalaureate program at Land O' Lakes High School in Florida.  As part of the community outreach in the IB program, Kevin created an original animated video to teach students about the science fair.  Kevin's animation has been featured on several sites including NASA, the National Science Foundation Knowledge Network, National Geographic Kids, PBS Kids, George Lucas Foundation-Edutopia, and Intel's Inspired by Education site. Kevin was also recently profiled by NASA. You can read an interview with Kevin here.
