Science Fair

Calling All Curious Minds!

The McKinley Science Fair is designed to let your child set the pace while getting hands-on experience with the scientific process. The culmination is a non-competitive Science Fair family event in February.

By participating, we hope your child(ren) will gain a basic understanding of how to ask a question and use the scientific process to get the answer, and then explain the answer to others.

McKinley’s 2020 sensational science season has begun!

This year’s Science Fair is on Thursday, February 20, 7-8:30 p.m. The fair will include a variety of demonstrations designed to have fun with SCIENCE. Join us!


5th graders are required to complete science fair projects as an integral part of their curriculum. 4th graders work on class projects. Participation for all other students is optional.

Getting started is easy! Please download this Family Guide to learn about:

  • Choosing a project
  • Family assistance guidelines
  • Scientific Method requirements

How You Can Help

Help with classroom presentations on the scientific method, plan fair activities, comment on student projects, and set-up and supervise the evening event.

Contact the program chair(s) if you wish to help.

Volunteers are needed to spend an hour or two anytime on Feb 20 to review student projects and provide positive, encouraging feedback on comment cards.
