Science Fair

The Timber Ridge Science Fair will be held during the day Wednesday, January 22, 2020 for judging and parents can view their child(ren)'s projects at the evening session that will begin at 6:00pm. Winners will be announced promptly at 6:30pm.
All components of the science projects should be fully set-up and ready for judging NO LATER than 8:30am on Wednesday.
Options for getting your child's project to school:
*** If the project contains glass, you may NOT bring the project to school on the bus. Please remember no alcohol, drugs, weapons, etc. are allowed.
- You may send the project to school with your child on Wednesday morning.
- You may come with your child to the cafeteria on Tuesday afternoon, January 21, 2020, between 3:00-4:30pm.
- You may come with your child to the cafeteria between 7:20-8:30am on Wednesday morning, January 22, 2020. Please do not park in the bus/ASP lot.
- All Science Fair participants will have from 8:00am to 8:30am on Wednesday to set up their projects and finishing touches. We will have volunteers in the cafeteria on Wednesday morning as you are not required to stay and help your student set up but you may if you so choose.
The panel of judges will be at Timber Ridge during the day. Three total judges from other Cobb County Schools will double-score the projects based on the Cobb County Science Fair Project Rubric. Each project will be reviewed by two or more judges with an average taken for the final overall project score. All participants will have the opportunity to share their projects with their peers once judging is complete. Classrooms will have the opportunity to walk through and see all Science Fair projects.
The top six projects with the highest scores (regardless of grades) will advance to the Cobb County School District Science Fair on February 8, 2020 at Smitha Middle School. Grade level and mixed grade ribbons and participation ribbons will also be awarded. Participation in the Science Fair is completely voluntary for all students.
