information on this website will be taken from
the 2018 STEM Exhibition

This information should be read carefully and
thoroughly by the student and the teacher.
Planning and selection of a STEM research project,
the method of developing a scientific paper, and
the adherence to safety requirements are
explained in depth in this handbook.
progress has been made on a STEM investigation, the
participant may exhibit his/her project at the
local school STEM Exposition. If
successful, the participant may move on to a
Chicago Public Schools Regional STEM Exposition. From
this level, the project may be chosen for
exhibit at the Citywide Chicago Public
Schools STEM Exposition.
A student researcher
at the high school level may also submit a STEM based research
paper for evaluation and possible presentation
in the Symposium. To participate in the
Symposium, a student is not required to have an
exhibit to display at the exposition, but he/she
must conduct primary STEM research as a
basis for the paper.
