Silverdale Elementary School Science Showcase 2019 Rules and Regulations

 

1. Displays should not take more table space than 30” wide by 14” deep. This is the amount of table space taken up by a standard size project board (labeled: 36” X 24” folded, 36” X 48” flat) when it is standing open.   

2. No matches, fire, glass, live animals, weapons or toxic substances permitted. Avoid materials that are valuable, breakable, or hazardous. Avoid any unsteady displays. Animals can be used in the experiment (e.g. “what it is my cat’s favorite food”?) but not in the display. Use pictures on your display.

3. There are a very limited number of electrical outlets available. You need to make advance arrangements and provide your own extension cords to use electricity.
