2020 Montana Tech Science Fair

Hello Science Fair and Symposium Teachers! 

A new school year has started, the leaves are changing colors and we are gearing up for the 2020 Montana Tech Regional Science & Engineering Fair and Intermountain Junior Science & Humanities Symposium (IJSHS). 


  • There will be an email sent regarding activity sign-ups closer to the fair date for Division II - 5th - 8th

  • We are providing a SRC/IRB Prior Approval committee this year for the Division I - 9th - 12th

  • We’ll host a High School teacher meeting the morning of the Division I - 9th - 12th

Below in the contact information, you will notice that we have added an Instagram and Twitter account.  For both Science Fair and Symposium there will be one hashtag so you the teachers, students and parents can see what other young scientists are doing across the state and region.  Encourage your students to use the hashtag #MTTechScience20 this year as they work on their projects.

Montana Tech looks forward to another rewarding year of working with young scientists.  We are grateful to have the opportunity to guide you and your students through the science fair process.  Know that we are here as a resource for you throughout the year.  Look for email updates, and please contact me if your students need equipment, guidance , or mentors to successfully complete projects.

Good Luck!

Amy Verlanic
