The Ohio State University at Marion

Marion Area Science & Engineering Fair
5. Mentors

The Society for Science & the Public identifies several adults who may be working with a student on their project: the Adult Sponsor (required for all projects), the Qualified Scientist, and the Designated Supervisor. Each of these adults plays a role, where needed, in overseeing the student's work and ensuring that applicable rules and guidelines are followed. See Rules or Forms for a detailed description of the roles of these adults.

It is expected that an adult involved in a student's science project will act as a mentor, advising and encouraging the student while ensuring that the student does the research and development of the project.

The Scientific Review Committee at OSU Marion will work with any high school students entering the Marion Area Science & Engineering Fair who wish to find mentors for their projects.
