Scientific fraud and misconduct are not condoned at any level of research or competition. Plagiarism, use or presentation of other researcher's work as one's own and fabrication or falsification of data will not be tolerated. Fraudulent projects will fail to qualify for competition in affiliated fairs or the ISEF.
House of Cards
Summary: Build various architectural shapes out of cards to discover which will create the most stable structure!
Students will learn about the concepts of tension and compression. They will then be asked to choose a geometric shape and then construct a building of note cards that only uses the chosen shape. Each building will be tested to determine how much weight it can sustain. Students will then be able to discuss which geometric shapes are the most stable.
Balloon Powered Car
Regretfully SSTFI has had to drop the Junior High workshops on Friday. The pressures of getting all the projects judged takes more time which means no time for the workshops. The workshops were popular and brought value to the fair experience but were secondary to the day's purpose to focus on the student's research. Read more about No Junior High Workshops
