Forest Trail Elementary


Due to COVID-19, FTE has decided to move our science fair completely online (mirroring Austin Energy Regional Science Festival decision to do the same). For the 2020-2021 fair, elementary students will submit virtual presentations which will include a project board and reflection questions on what they learned. Judges will review the presentations using a rubric, and award the students a 1st, 2nd or 3rd place ribbon.

Please click the following links for the FTE Science Fair sign-up link and informational packet.

Interested participants must sign up on-line by December 18th at the latest.
