Short Description:

What is the Solar Science Fair?
The Solar Science Fair is a semester-long project for students ages 13-18 as well as classrooms and the general public. Participants are expected to create original projects using solar data. There will be many opportunities to ask solar scientists questions about your project or about what they do at NASA.

How will the projects be judged?
All projects will be judged based on the use of the scientific method, use of solar data, creativity and the clarity of the presentation. Each project will be judged by a panel of three judges individually and given a score for each of the sections and also an overall score.  The winners in each category will based on the cumulative score of the subsections and the overall project.
