The Too Cool For School Art & Science Fair

Here is an interesting site: The Too Cool For School Art & Science Fair . They want to bring art and science together. Have a look at it. If you live in Southern Ontario you might want to attend.

Do you seem to live in a different world from everyone around you? Do you spend your free time inventing, collecting, drawing, writing, theorizing, or somehow tinkering with your obsession?

Then we invite YOU to submit a project to the Too Cool for School Art & Science Fair!

The deadline for submissions is Friday, March 26, 2010.

The Too Cool For School Art & Science Fair will be a truly interdisciplinary event at which people from diverse fields share art and information and engage in friendly competition. The event is structured just like a school science fair — participants will display their projects on rows of tables. The difference, however, is that this event is as much about art as it is about science.

The fair is for all ages, with the one restriction being 15 years and older. Here is a link to the submission guideline page:

which is basically the following:

* one paragraph of 50 words or less describing your project
* one drawing or photograph describing your project
* one bio of 50 words or less describing yourself and your work, education and volunteer experience
