General Information for Teachers and Schools

In order for your students to participate in The Academy of Science - St. Louis Science Fair, you need to:

  1. Register your school
    Each school that will send projects to The Academy of Science -  St. Louis Science Fair must register their school.  One teacher should represent your school and complete the on-line registration.
  2. Confirmation
    Once you have successfully registered your school, you are able to sign in at any time and view your school information on the web, and edit if need be.  Click here to log in to your school coordinator dashboard.

  3. Overview
    # of Spaces for your School
    When you register your school, you request a certain number of spots.  Most schools will request 5 to 25 depending on the size of your school.  Usually we can honor all requests; however, there only 1,800 available spots at Queeny Park.  If the total request is over 1,800 we sometimes have to cut back a few spots for some schools.  School Coordinators who register the schools will be notified by e-mail if we need to make an adjustment.
