SPICE will have greeters at the curb to direct presenters and visitors to the fair.  Parents/responsible adults may drop presenters off at the curb with their projects while searching for parking (more info below).  Curbside greeters will escort young students into the fair.  Once inside the building, SPICE demonstration staff will check the student in, guide him/her to their display spot and assist in set up.  Parents/responsible adults are expected to remain with students under 14 during the fair.  SPICE staff will chaperone during set up only.
