Find A Mentor

Due to a new University of Utah policy we can no longer find mentors to directly help students with science fair projects. Instead, we encourage you to find your own mentor(s) to help you.

The University of Utah has a program made exactly for this called "Find A Researcher". You can read more about that on their website: Utah.edu/findaresearcher.

When contacting others for help, please be respectful of their time & resources:

  • Have your questions well thought out before contacting them.
  • Give them as much information as you can about your project.
  • (Have a project already in mind!)
  • Be specific about what you'd like help with.
  • Be respectful of their time & access to any equipment you might need.
  • Give them plenty of time to respond & help—no last-minute requests.

Thanks for your understanding about this change.
