What are the best soils for plants to grow in? Do some flavors of ice cream melt faster than others? How do the pH levels in common household products differ? Over the next few months, students will be hauling poster boards to local science fairs that display answers to these and other questions. Such projects are only getting more sophisticated as technology—and students’ access to it—improves.

Education Week and Education Week Teacher want to show off the experiments going on around the country. We’re asking K-12 students and teachers to share videos and photos of their science fair projects, including an explanation of the experiment and what was learned.

Submit via social media (#EWScienceFair) or by using the form below. More information on how to participate.

How to Participate:
  • Share videos or photos of experiments on Instagram or Twitter with the hashtag #EWScienceFair, or submit them using the form above.
