South Florida Science Center & Aquarium is Hosting a FREE Virtual Science Fair

If you’re still looking for ways to keep your kids busy and consistently learning outside the classroom, you are in luck! The education team at the South Florida Science Center and Aquarium is launching a Virtual Science Fair designed for students in grades K-8 throughout April and May (2020).

Science Center Virtual Science Fair

The South Florida Science Center Virtual Science Fair will consist of two-week sessions throughout April and May. Participants can choose to compete in one or all of the themed weeks. This FREE event will also be offering prizes and opportunities for families to work together on exciting STEM projects!

What are the Virtual Science Fair dates?
  • April 20th – May 1st = Backyard Science Lab
  • May 4th – May 15th = Slingshot Paper Airplane Launch
  • May 18th – May 29th = Rube Goldberg Machine

There will be two grade categories per series: K-5 and 6-8, with prizes ranging from award-winning robotics and engineering kits to microscopes and mini drones. A panel of SFSCA educators and leadership will be judging the projects and choosing the winners. All participants will get a digital participation certificate and be entered into a drawing for an admission pack to the Science Center.

Participation is FREE with donations requested. When projects are ready for submission, participants must include a short, 30-second video of their project.
