Judging rubrics are available for each type of project from your science teacher or Mrs. Conrad. You may download rubrics or other science fair information from Mrs. Lacey Ogburn’s CISD teacher webpage: http://ogburns-science-class.chs.cisd.schoolfusion.us/.

The purpose of the CHS Science Fair rules are to ensure the safety of the public and exhibitors, as well as make the latter aware of the importance of ethics in the field of scientific research. These rules do not limit the exhibitors’ creativity or the scientific process; rather, they encourage participants to work in a safe and structured manner.

Everyone is a winner at CHS “Home of Champs”, the science fair is going to be a great participation, where everyone will show off their scientific ideas.
