Science Fair Categories


The study of animals (vertebrates and invertebrates). For example – animal development, animal ecology, animal genetics, animal husbandry, animal pathology, animal physiology, animal systematics, biochemistry related to animals, animal cellular & molecular biology, etc.

The study of human and animal behavior and social and community relationships. For example

– clinical & developmental psychology, cognitive psychology, physiological psychology, sociology, etc.

The study of the chemical substances and vital processes occurring in living organisms, the processes by which these substances enter into, or are formed in, the organisms and react with each other and the environment.

The study of the structure and formation of cells.

The study of the composition, structure, properties and reactions of matter, especially of atomic and molecular systems. For Example – analytical chemistry, inorganic chemistry, organic chemistry, physical chemistry, general chemistry, etc.

The study of information processes, the structures and procedures that represent processes, and their implementation in information processing systems. It includes systems analysis and design, application and system software design, programming, and datacenter operations.

The study of sciences related to the planet Earth (Geology, minerology, physiography, oceanography, meteorology, climatology, speleology, sesismology, geography, atmospheric sciences, etc.)

The studies of energy sources and land and space transportation. For Example – aerospace & aeronautical engineering, aerodynamics, alternative fuels, fossil fuel energy, vehicle development, renewable energy, etc.

The application of scientific and mathematical principles to practical ends such as the design, manufacture, and operation of efficient and economical structures, processes, and systems.

The application of scientific and mathematical principles to practical ends such as the design, manufacture, and operation of efficient and economical machines and systems.

The study of managing mans' interaction with the environment.

The study of pollution sources and their control, ecology and conservation. For Example – air pollution & quality, soil contamination & quality, water pollution & quality, bioremediation, ecosystems management, environmental engineering, land resource management, forestry, recycling, waste management, etc.

The study of the measurement, properties, and relationships of quantities and sets, using numbers and symbols. The deductive study of numbers, geometry, and various abstract constructs, or structures. Mathematics is very broadly divided into foundations, algebra, analysis, geometry, and applied mathematics, which includes theoretical computer science.

The study of diseases and health of humans. For example – disease diagnosis and treatment, epidemiology, human genetics, molecular biology of diseases, human physiology & pathophysiology, biochemistry related to humans, human cellular & molecular biology, etc.

The study of microorganism biology. For example – antibiotics, antimicrobials, bacteriology, microbial genetics, virology, etc.

The study of matter and energy (on Earth and in space) and the interactions between the two.

For Example – atoms, molecules, solids, biological physics, instrumentation & electronics, magnetics & electromagnetics, nuclear & particle physics, optics, lasers, masers, theoretical physics, theoretical or computational astronomy, etc.

The study of plant life. For example – agriculture/agronomy, plant development, plant ecology, plant genetics, photosynthesis, plant physiology (molecular, cellular, & organismal), plant systematics, plant evolution, biochemistry related to plants, etc.
