Extension is expanding its online education and resources to adapt to COVID-19 restrictions.

Ecology Science Fair

The Ecology Science Fair centers on student-driven investigations in ecology, encouraging students to engage in all steps of the research process, including the important final step of data presentation. University of Minnesota Extension is proud to partner with The Raptor Center to provide the 24th annual Ecology Science Fair, with funding from the Cargill Foundation.

The Ecology Science Fair provides a forum for elementary, middle school and high school students to present their research. Due to continued COVID uncertainty, this year’s Fair will be held 100% virtually. To reflect this, we have dubbed this year’s fair the Ecology Science eFair! Students conduct research where they are at—whether at school, a local park, or at home—and then share their findings with other students, teachers and scientists in this annual celebration of student achievement. 

Students share their research by presenting their project and answering interview questions from a scientist. They may also attend virtual breakout sessions that include fun ecology-related STEM presentations.

The Ecology Science eFair will be held virtually, utilizing an online platform called zFairs, on Saturday, January 30, 2021. See more information under Registration below.
