• Virtual Displays

    Before you start, be sure to electronically submit your Research and Safety Plan and parent-signed Safety Form to STEAMFestForms@kirkwoodschools.org for pre-approval.  Once you receive district email approval, you are ready to start your project.  This will be done no later than December 21, 2022.

    Projects without the pre-approved Research Plan will not be eligible to advance to the ASSLSF.

    The virtual display is an exciting opportunity for students to:

    1. Gain experience preparing real-world technical presentations
    2. No need to drop off your project at the Fair -- submit it online!
    3. Go Green by reducing material use and waste
    4. Save money by not buying display materials

    Complete your science fair research as you have in the past, but instead of preparing a physical display, you will prepare an electronic presentation according to the rules listed below.  Submit your project to Kirkwood electronically by February 8, 2023.   

    Keynote and Pages will not be accepted.  This is due to the Academy of Science St. Louis Science Fair accepting only Word, PowerPoint or PDF's. 

    Virtual Display Rules:

    1. The project (experiment, research, etc.) must be completed following all guidelines for safety measures, project types, and project categories.
    2. Two files must be turned in (uploaded) with each virtual display project.  Refer to #3 and #4 below.
    3. PowerPoint for the project presentation.  (This is in accordance with Academy of Science St. Louis Science Fair requirements.)  No more than 10 slides or pages and 100 mb.  It should contain everything that would normally have been displayed on your project board.  Pictures, text, and scanned drawings are all acceptable.
    4. The logbook should be submitted as a Word document -- no more than ten pages and 100 mb.  Use the same guidelines as for a project board.  Be sure to scan and include the pre-approved Research Plan and your signed Safety Form -- it's worth 10 points!!
    5. The logbook and PowerPoint project combined can not exceed 20 pages.
    6. This year you are also required to prepare and submit a Quad Chart created in Landscape mode and uploaded as an image or PDF.

    Once your project has been completed, you must submit your virtual project to STEAMFestForms@kirkwoodschools.org  no later than February 8, 2023.  

    Kirkwood judging will be completed on February 28, 2023.  By March 1 - 3, 2023, Kirkwood will post the placement of all participants online.  Students that qualify to advance to the ASSLSF virtual fair will be provided with details for advancing to the Academy of Science St. Louis Science Fair.  Visit www.sciencefairstl.org no later than noon of March 17, 2023 to register.
