UPPER EAST TENNESSEE SCIENCE FAIR
Virtual Fair for 2021 !
We would like all Videos Submitted by FRIDAY, MAY 7, 2021
We are using Google Classroom as our Virtual Platform. For privacy and security of videos of students, only the Science Fair Judges will be able to access the videos (or links to them) posted for the student projects. Students, Teachers, or Parents can upload the files/links to the classroom and should contact firstname.lastname@example.org (Dr. Gary Henson) if you have a problem with joining the classroom or the upload. NOTE: School accounts using “Google Workspace for Education” may not allow one to Join the UETSF classrooms which are in a different internet domain. In that case, you will need to use a personal Google Account (free and easy to create if you don’t have one) in order to Join the classroom.
WHO MAY ENTER THIS FAIR: Students in grades four through eight who live in Upper East Tennessee (Carter, Cocke, Greene, Hamblen, Hancock, Hawkins, Johnson, Sullivan, Unicoi, and Washington counties) and attend public, private, or parochial schools, or are taught by members of a Home Education Association are eligible to enter the Upper East Tennessee Science Fair.
FIRST, for the student project videos. There is a limit on our storage space but you have the option of Uploading the actual video file or a “link” to the video which could be on Google Drive, You Tube, etc. as long as the link has permissions so judges can view the video. Videos should be only 3-5 minutes in length with the student describing their project and using visual aids to explain the details. A typical trifold board like display is easiest but not required. Props, photos, data charts, etc. could be displayed using other means.
Once you have your video ready, you will need to upload a completed one page Student Entry Form to the classroom first. The entry form is a fillable PDF form. Download the PDF file here
Once you have downloaded the form, fill it out completely (see a sample here: sample ) and Save the File to your local computer with Your Name as the File Name … John-Doe.pdf for example.
SECOND, below is a link to the webpage that contains the Google Classroom invitation links or the classroom Code that you can use to Join the Classroom for your grade level and category. Once you join the Classroom, go to the “Classwork” tab and you will see 2 Assignments posted: One for the Entry Form and One for the Project Video (can be file or link). If you are familiar with Google Classroom and uploading assignments you should be good to turn them in and then just wait for our Judges decisions (week of May 10th). If you are not familiar with this process, Below is also a Help Video for entering the classroom and uploading your entry form and video.
