Queeny: The Academy of Science - St. Louis Science Fair
The Academy of Science - St. Louis Science Fair is the premier Science Fair in St. Louis with over 4,000 students representing 200 schools throughout the region. $50,000 in scholarships and awards are presented to top students each year. Inquiry-based learning at its best - St. Louis students follow their passion as they explore the world they live in. Science Fair is the perfect platform to support and showcase classroom science and engineering and helps students meet the 2020 Show-Me Standards science expectations for each grade level. Research demonstrates the value of project-based learning for college success and a stem-literate workforce of the future.
Kirkwood School District STEAMFest is a pre-qualifier to determine which Kirkwood students advance to Queeny. St. Louis school districts are each allocated a pre-determined number of exhibit spaces. This means that all students receiving a first place ribbon at the Kirkwood STEAMFest are not automatically guaranteed advancement to Queeny. Instead, those projects in first place are judged a second time by a multi-person committee to select the very best of the best to fill our limited spaces.
In the time between our two fairs, students eligible for Queeny may elect to improve or edit their project displays. Their grading rubric from STEAMFest may carry helpful improvement comments from the judges. By all means, use this time to "tweak" your project.
Students advancing to Queeny will take responsibiity for their online registration. The instruction sheet included below will walk students through that process. Note that a special password is needed to register -- that password will be provided with the student award packet. If that password is misplaced or forgotten, please contact Lorna Dick for a new password.
