Register for the Science Fair

Registration for the 2019 science fair is open. If you have any problems with your registration or any other emergency please also use our contact form. Our programs must be printed ahead of time so we may not be able to accommodate a requested change.


The 62th annual Rome Science Fair will be held on Saturday March 2nd 2019 at Rome Free Academy at 8am. Home-schooled students are more than welcome.

Guidelines: Good Science Projects usually involve a combination of a keen interest in the subject, discussions with others, examination of literature and the availability of needed materials. A bit of advance planning will save time, effort, and money. Follow Scientific processes. Today, with access to research databases and spreadsheets, a ten-step Scientific Method is recommended:

  1. State the Problem.
  2. Develop a Hypothesis.
  3. Do Literature Research [read as much as possible]
  4. Prepare the Experiment
  5. Conduct the Experiment
  6. Tabulate the results from the Experiment
  7. Analyze the results of the Experiment
  8. Apply Experimental Results to Hypothesis
  9. State Conclusions
  10. Make Recommendations [what research/experiment to do next]
