Submit a project for our SB Reads Science Fair this fall! To take part you must be between the ages of 8 and 18 and able to present it at the event Saturday October 15, 2022 11 AM - 1 PM. Group submissions are welcome. We’re looking for projects on earth science, climate change, or sustainability in particular. Projects that allow for maximum hands-on interaction from the public are preferred.

Full Name

Age Group:

Does your project follow the scientific method with a hypothesis, observations, and conclusion?

If chosen, I will be prepared to speak about my science fair project

I live in Santa Barbara County:

I will have a science project ready to present by October 14th.

I am aware my selected project will be photographed and shared on the Library’s social media for marketing purposes.

I give my permission to the Santa Barbara Public Library System to use my photographic image and the images of my minor child/ren for the above purposes.

Submissions will need to be able to fit on top of a 2ft by 6ft table and include a write up of observations, hypothesis, analysis, and conclusion.

Would you like to be considered for a $50 stipend to help buy project materials? There are limited stipends available.

Need some inspiration? Here are a few links and some ideas that you can investigate through a science project!
