What is new with a Virtual fair?

This year, along with the registration paperwork, each student or team must submit a short 2 – 3 minute PowerPoint video to represent their project board. Using one PowerPoint slide containing their board information, students will explain their research in an accompanying video. The video will then be uploaded to a private YouTube account to create an online link to the video. The link to the video will be embedded into the research plan of the registration paperwork.
