Any student can compete. We are not only looking to draw in the best STEM students, but also students who may be interested in STEM and don’t know it yet!
The 25th Annual Scottsdale Community College Math/Science Field Day will be held virtually from March 6 through April 18, 2021. Throughout the weeks, students will have the opportunity to win scholarships to Scottsdale Community College, as well as many other prizes by participating in a series of project competitions.
1) Individual Based: Each student competitor must register and complete their choice of projects on their own (without the help of parents, tutors, friends, siblings or their teachers), making sure to record their progress in each project via photographs or video. Any SCC or high school student in Maricopa County, AZ, is eligible to participate as the projects are basic and engaging.
2) Menu of Projects: Each participant must choose and complete 3 projects in order to be eligible for the top prizes of scholarships to SCC and gift cards. They must choose the projects from different disciplines (e.g. they cannot choose two projects from engineering), create a photo slideshow or video of how they completed each project, and submit the slideshow/video for judging. Rules and processes must be followed in all areas to be eligible for prizes.
3) Project Competition: Each project submitted will be judged by staff and faculty within the project discipline, ranked, and eventually posted on our Math/Science Field Day webpage in order that students can vote on the best videos in each discipline. The guidelines for the grading of the projects within each discipline will be posted on the Menu page.
4) Math/Science Final Competition: Based on the top-scoring student submissions, grand, first, second, third, and honorable mention prizes will be awarded. The awards for the top project in each discipline will be selected by the competitors themselves. The awards list is located here on this website.
By Thursday, March 4, 2021, 11:59 PM, each individual participant must complete the online registration form found on our website along with submitting a Photo/Video/Quote Release form signed and dated by the student (or the parent/guardian if under 18). Precisely at 12 midnight Saturday, March 6, 2021, the competition begins and the full Menu will be available. The cutoff for submissions is precisely 11:59 PM, April 11, 2021.
