•       The ISEF/CUSEF rules have several limitations on what can be displayed please read the rules page for more information.
•       It is not necessary for the actual experiment or project to be on display at the science fair. The display should demonstrate the scientific thought and processes that were followed and show what the student learned.

Volunteer Opportunity

We are in need of judges for the Science Fair (40 volunteers to be more precise) on February 28th. Before you start doubting your ability to judge a science fair, be aware that in no way, shape, or form do you need to be a science major! This is a great way to earn volunteer hours and help our students who work so hard at putting together their project. If you are interested, or just want a little more information, please email us at pvo@reaganacademy.org
