The American Physiological Society (APS) APS members can now make an APS award at their local or regional science fair at the elementary, middle, or high school level.
In order that the questions or tasks spark a true interest in the student they should be able to have an interesting, eye catching project.
Science fairs also provide a mechanism for students with intense interest in the sciences to be paired with mentors from nearby colleges and universities, so that they can access to instruction and equipment that the local schools can not provide.
Check the fair rules about the information that can be included. Prepare a table of contents listing the page number of each section. When planning your schedule, be sure your starting date gives you enough time to be finished before the due date.
