About ScienzFair


The ScienzFair™ site is one of the World Wide Web's premier sources of information and ideas for students involved in Science Fair activities. ScienzFair™ offers the student numerous scientific categories from which to choose and then provides a large number of project ideas in each category. We try to provide a good mix of ideas so that both younger students as well as high school students will find useful ideas at the ScienzFair™ site. The site includes research, demonstration, and experimental project ideas.

Many of the listed ideas are preceded by an animated bullet, indicating a link either to an example project or to web based information directly relevant to the project idea. At the bottom of each page of ideas is an additional link to a reference page which provides further sources of general information relative to that page's topical subject area.

Each week, dozens of new ideas will be added to the idea pages, along with additional project links and resource links for the ideas that are already listed. ScienzFair™ will be a steadily growing site with an increasing number of project ideas, example projects and resource links. And in the future, large scale reference sections are planned which will detail many of the common experimental procedures and provide advice on applying them to science fair projects.


ScienzFair™ was developed and is maintained by Sean McCormick of Weblink Consultants, Antioch, Illinois. Sean's degree is in Physics with a minor in mathematics. Sean has extensive experience in the electronics industry, environmental testing, management consulting, training program development and technical writing. He has also had several years of experience advising students on the details of their science fair projects and helping them identify and research new project ideas.
