Welcome to the SCIENCE MONTGOMERY

Important Dates & Times

Montgomery County Science Fair, 2022

Registration is now open for the 2022 Fair

WHEN: March 25-27, 2022

WHERE: We have contacted the Food and Drug Administration about hosting our fair at their facility. The FDA has indicated that it will decide whether or not to host large gatherings in January. Although vaccines have been approved for students ages 5-12, new concerns such as the transmissibility of the omicron variant have arisen. We will continue to use the zFairs platform both for an actual fair and, if necessary, a completely virtual fair.

WHO: Students living or attending school in Montgomery County, MD and/or Washington, DC

Fair Schedule

*Deadline for Preapproval by Institutional Review Board: Tuesday, January 2, 2022 at 11:59 pm (Only projects involving human experimentation)

Registration Deadline: Monday, February 7, 2022 at 11:59 pm

Participant Information Freeze: Friday, March 18, 2022 at 11:59 pm

*Projects that involve participation of human subjects require preapproval. This preapproval is available through your mentor if you completed your research at a university or research institution. If you develop your own project using human volunteers, you must have approval from our IRB before starting the project. You can contact us at Science Montgomery Institutional Review Board.

Welcome to the 2022 Montgomery County Virtual Fair!

Thank you for volunteering to share your expertise with the young scientists and engineers in our community. Despite the pandemic, students in Montgomery County continue to research scientific questions and design engineering solutions. Through zFairs, our virtual science fair platform, judges will be able to view student videos and read project abstracts in the showcase prior to virtual conferences with the participants. Although the conferences will be virtual, the interactions between judges and students will be as valuable as ever. By listening to a young person explain his or her project and then asking questions, providing advice, and sharing their excitement about the research, you will have encouraged their enthusiasm for science and possibly sparked new directions for both their research and their career interests. 

Our tentative fair schedule is:

Showcase: Sunday March 20, 2022 through Sunday, March 27, 2022

Community and Category Judging: March 25-26, 2022

ISEF Judging: March 27, 2022

There are three types of judges: category judges, judges from community organizations, and ISEF judges. Please register appropriately.  Unless you are affiliated with a specific community organization that offers an award, you are most likely a category judge. If you have questions, contact the fair director. (fairdirector@sciencemontgomery.org)

Prior to judging, we will post videos that explain the procedure and provide access to appropriate documents.
