This year the Boston Public Schools Citywide/Region VI Science Fair will be virtual. We have moved all information to a new platform. To register and complete paperwork everyone (teachers, students, judges, etc) must go to our new zFAIRS site.
Email: Karissa Goff, Director of BPS Citywide/Region VI middle and high school science fairs with questions and concerns.
Find answers and accompanying links to the following questions on the FAQs sheet:
What happens if it snows?
There is no snow date. In the event of a cancelation, the BPS Citywide/Region VI committee will follow the same process as was done for the 73rd Science Fair. Students who opt-in to be judged for ISEF will submit projects and be judged online. Schools will nominate projects for the MS/HS state fairs and will the support of the Science Fair Committee be entered in as either Direct or Regional entries. Details and procedures will be published only if necessary.
