Categories

Individuals and team projects of the same scientific discipline will compete in the same category. Students will select a project category and type (individual/team) during registration. A team consists of 2 or 3 members.

JUNIOR DIVISION- (Grade 6)
Physical Science 6: Projects in the areas of physics, states of matter, heat, temperature, electricity and magnetism, optics, acoustics, etc.chemistry, organic, inorganic, chemical compounds, household chemicals, etc. engineering, technology, inventions and project that directly apply scientific principles to manufacturing and practical uses - civil, mechanical, aeronautical, chemical, electrical, photographic, sound automotive, marine, heating and refrigerating, transportation, environmental engineering, etc.
Life Science 6: Projects in the areas of biology, zoology, botany, enzymes, photosynthesis, blood chemistry, protein chemistry, food chemistry, biochemistry, human and animal behavior, psychology, learning perception, educational testing, nutrition, allergies, studies of animal/human health, etc..
Consumer Science 6: Projects in the areas of consumer product testing and design.

INTERMEDIATE DIVISION- (Grade 7, 8)
