2020-2021 Information

Every year the STEM Fair Committee strive to make changes to improve the fair.  After meeting with parents and teachers these are the changes coming this year:

  1. STEM fair will be virtual this year.  Participants will make a Flipgrid presentation and take a picture of their display board by February 25th and judges will use what is in Flipgrid to make ribbon and award decisions.
  2. While projects will not be selected to move forward to the NM STEM Regional Challenge, this year participants will be competing for prizes and ribbons. Prizes will include gift certificates, SASM swag, and much, much more!
  3. Category of Projects:  Students can participate as individuals, families, or classroom projects. Individual projects are for single student working on their own project. Family projects are for multiple SASM students living in the same household working on a single project. Classroom projects are students working in groups either in their classrooms or learning pods.
  4. Types of Projects:  We will have three types of projects this year that are available for all students K-5.  They will include Science Demonstrations, Science Projects and Engineering Projects. 
  5. Online Registration:  Registration is due by December 11th.  The registration form can be found at Registration Form 
  6. San Antonito STEM Magnet Science Fair Planning Guides:  These guides are to help you or your family get started and complete a great STEM project.  There are four of them:  Getting Started, Science Project Guide, Engineering Project Guide, and Science Demonstration Guide.  While there are worksheets to help work through aspects of your project, none of it is required. To enter the fair, you only need to fill in the registration form found at Registration Form.
  7. All students or families are invited to complete a science, engineering or demonstration project.  Participation in the STEM fair is optional for ALL students.

Goals & Purpose

The San Antonito STEM Fair is on its way!  This year the fair will be held on Thursday, February 25th.  The STEM Fair Committee would like to offer a few pointers and words of encouragement (especially for those beginning kindergarten parents!).  

  • Our goal is to ignite the students’ interest in science and engineering, to have them explore some concept and have fun.  
  • Facilitating the project is different from doing it for your child. Make sure you do not do all the work.  However, do not leave your child to flounder, winding up with a negative feeling toward science.  
  • Help your child choose a project in which he or she truly has an interest. Make it fun!  Let them wonder, let them investigate, let them find something out!
  • Remember, learning can be messy!  As long as your child (and your home) is safe, all you have to do is provide the time, materials.  Natural curiosity will take your child to a higher level of thinking.
  • For grades K-2, encourage the students to explore science in their own way.  They do not need to follow the scientific method perfectly.
