Student Activities

NEW in 2021-22! Azusa Pacific University will be chairing a virtual Science Fair for students in Grades 6-8 on May 17, 2022 (Submissions Deadline for projects is April 22, 2022). They will also be hosting an in-person Science Fair for students in Grades 9-12 on May 19, 2022 on APU's campus in Azusa, CA. 

ACSI member schools in the Western Division are invited to participate in both the virtual and in-person Science Fair events.   

The ACSI Science Fair provides a valuable opportunity for students to design and defend a scientific investigation while, most importantly, relating how this aspect of God's creation reveals His divine and eternal power. All projects will be judged against a rubric by the faculty, staff, and upper division students from Azusa Pacific University's Center for Research and Science (CRIS). APU's CRIS faculty will also engage students through keynote speakers, a Faith & Science panel, and specialized STEM classes throughout the event.

Project categories include Life Science, Physical Science, and Engineering. Students in Grades 6-12 from ACSI member schools may participate. For Grades 6-8, each school is allowed a maximum of three (3) projects per grade level per category. For Grades 9-12, each school is allowed a maximum of five (5) projects per grade level per category. 

Adjudication & Awards

Rosette ribbons are awarded to each student honoring Superior, Excellent, and Good projects. An Olympic-style medallion is awarded to each student whose project earns 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place in each grade level and category.
