Completing the ISTF

Congratulations are in order for any teacher/facilitator who has made it to this point.  By now, your students understand why we refer to the Internet Science and Technology Fair (ISTF) as a "real-world challenge." Below are some suggestions you should consider as your students are nearing the conclusion of their projects. Now is the time to involve other teachers/facilitators, parents of students or your school's/organization's administrators in viewing your final project(s). Having extra "sets of eyes" checking students' content against the guidelines, watching for misspellings, making sure images are appropriate and all hyperlinks work are vital to success.

There are, as in any team effort, loose ends that need to be tied up before the final ISTF Project is submitted. As a teacher, here are some suggestions you might want to consider.
Evaluation is a critical part of any educational program and holds true for the ISTF.
Besides the on-line progress report mentioned earlier, there is a final on-line evaluation that must be completed before a teacher submits the URL for a student team's final project website.
The ISTF competition ends at 5:00 p.m. Eastern Standard Time on the February deadline. (Please see the Schedule for the current year's dates.)
Judging of team websites begins in March. (Please see the Schedule for the current year's dates.)
Again, if you have questions or concerns you need answered, please contact: Director@istf.ucf.edu. Thank you for your interest in the Internet Science and Technology Fair (ISTF).
