Our Vision -  The founders and board of STEP have committed to seek opportunities to promote STEM projects in an effort to encourage growth and understanding, but more importantly, we wish to glorify the Lord and Creator by providing opportunities for homeschool youth to discover truths about God's creation, drawing them closer to him.

Benefits of Participation

  • Gives an opportunity for you to explore an aspect of God's creation with your child
  • Helps children know God by understanding his works
  • Teaches- reasearch skills, goal setting, public speaking and visual presentation
  • Provides opportunity for the whole family to participate, grow and be creative
  • Provides corroborative and cooperative experience among homeschool families

What's the Plan?

      The fair will not require an experiment with every type of project.  Instead, there will be three types of projects: 1. Collection, 2. Model / Demonstration, or 3. Experiment.
We do not require an exhibitor to do an experiment for the  first two.  Please review the 
"Science Fair" tab for more specifics on each and a judging criteria.  Our Score Sheets tab  
includes how each is scored, so that each exhibitor is properly prepared. More information about Rules, Guidelines, a project guide, a timeline and more can be found under the "Homeschool Science Fair" dropdown menu in Lighthouse's Opportunities tab.

          We will recognize exhibitors in as many ways as possible for their effort.  They will receive a 
participant ribbon, certificate, gift packet, and may also earn a placement ribbon and have the 
opportunity to earn specialty ribbons, which in each grade division include Grand Champion. We offer our Grand Champions saving certificates and paid opportunity to register for the Texas Regional Science Fair in Tomball, TX. (
Please note that the rules/guidelines for this fair may slightly differ from those of the TRSF, but any modifications will be minimal.)
