The Louise Archer Steam Fair will be held on Tuesday, March 24th, during the school day and from 6:30 to 8:00 p.m. The Steam Fair is open to all Louise Archer students.   Come showcase a project you have done in class or create a new one! To register, students should sign up in their classroom (at a sign-up sheet).  All Steam Fair participants MUST register by Thursday, March 19th.

Below you will find documents helpful in preparing your project, including project ideas, project guidelines, and oral presentation guidelines. Please note: students are prohibited from using the following in their projects: mold, bacteria, humans (including human surveys), and vertebrates.

Turning in Your Project
Your Steam Fair project should be brought to the Louise Archer cafeteria between 5:00 and 7:00 p.m. on Monday, March 23rd, UNLESS your teacher requests that you bring it to school before the drop off period. Put a Steam Fair label (found below) on the back of your project.

Presenting Your Project
On the day of the Steam Fair, Tuesday, March 24th, Louise Archer classes will have the opportunity to visit the Showcase during the school day. Additionally, you are asked to stand next to your project for a 45-minute session Tuesday evening. During that time, people may ask you questions about your project or ask you to explain.

You should stand by your project from 6:30 to 7:15 p.m. if you are in Grades K-1, or you are in Grades 2-6 with a last name that begins with A-K.

You should stand by your project from 7:15 to 8:00 p.m. if you are in Grades 2-6 with a last name that begins with L-Z.

When you are not standing with your project, you may view other projects at the Fair. Please take your project home when the Showcase ends at 8:00 p.m., or when you leave the Showcase for the evening. Do NOT leave your project at school after 8:00 p.m. Tuesday.
