Welcome to the Chicago Public Schools Student Science Fair, Inc. Website. 
The 2017 theme was
2018 is the 68th year of the Chicago Student Science Fair.  The Fair will take place at the Museum of Science and Industry in Chicago from March 15 to March 18, 2018.

This Web site is designed to assist the student in the development of a research project, an essay, or a symposium paper in the areas of Science, Technology, Engineering and/or Mathematics (STEM). The information on this website will be taken from the 2018 Science Fair handbook (when available). 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.


If significant progress has been made on a  STEM project, 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 Student Science Fair held at the Museum of Science and Industry.   more...
