* An episode of ''WesternAnimation/TinyToonAdventures'', "Buster's Guide to Goofing Off", was focused entirely on Buster waiting until the last minute to build a model volcano for the school science fair. Typical in every way possible, and on purpose.

Added DiffLines:

* At the beginning of the ''WesternAnimation/SonicBoom'' episode, "[[Recap/SonicBoomS2E21Mombot Mombot]]", Dr. Eggman enters one intended for children to show off his latest invention. Beth the Shrew wins for her diorama of the solar system, and Lady Walrus' Son ([[LastMinuteProject whose science project is a rock he chose at the last minute]]), the Monkey Boy, and the Reindeer Girl all get participation trophies. Dr. Eggman doesn't even get one, due to being disqualified for exceeding the maximum height at a children's competition.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/NedsDeclassifiedSchoolSurvivalGuide'' had an episode focusing on Ned trying to get a good grade in the science fair by entering Cookie's exo-skeleton, Moze trying to find something to eat since she was a model for Ned's project, and Cookie trying to win back Vanessa after the events of the "Excuses" episode. The winner of the science fair ends up being the paper towel experiment (since it was the only project not destroyed by Ned's exo-skeleton).

* ''Webcomic/GunnerkriggCourt'': the chapter "Two Strange Girls" focuses on a school science fair and a string of sabotages against the various projects. Kat gets annoyed that people are ignoring her studies of protein crystals and are more interested in the [[GadgeteerGenius anti-gravity device she built.]] No volcanoes this time, though.

Mainly a US and Canadian trope as it's schools in those countries that have this characteristic event, although there's always EaglelandOsmosis to consider.

* An episode of ''Webcomic/BobAndGeorge'', in which Dr. Cossack's daughter builds a self-aware robot and actually ends up losing to a papier-mâché volcano! She lived in the Soviet Union, and since they couldn't use the usual method of consulting the preserved head of JosefStalin (Dr. Wily stole it), they gave it to the other guy because they thought a boy winning would be better for the country.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Literature/PleaseDontTellMyParentsImASupervillain'': The book starts with Penny trying to come up with something interesting for the science fair. While doing that, her MadScientist power sparks, and she ends up creating a perfect recycling machine that acts like a living thing and responds to voice commands. Unfortunately, the judges give her a zero because they assume she borrowed it from her super genius father. This gets worse when the head cheerleader, Marcia Bradley, borrows a piece of alien technology for her presentation. Penny's best friend Ray is ''pissed'' on her behalf, and destroys the science fair at night. Except the whole thing was a trap by Marcia, who is actually the superhero sidekick Miss A, in order to draw out supervillain kids. Penny, Ray, and their friend Claire end up fighting off Miss A, which is how they end up as supervillains.

* A recent {{Omake}} of ''Webcomic/GirlGenius'' is a "Literature/{{Cinderella}}" parody for [[MadScientist sparks]], so the [[strike:prince]] twin princes are throwing a science fair, and there ''is'' a [[http://www.girlgeniusonline.com/comic.php?date=20081126 volcano]].

* In one of the ''weirder'' episode of ''DrakeAndJosh'', Josh and his girlfriend compete by building functional death rays. For a high school science fair. It was a ''really'' weird episode, specially since nobody seemed to find this weird or unlikely or frightening, so RuleOfFunny doesn't even apply

* ''TheCosbyShow'' had one of the Huxtable girls have a model of the solar system for her display and was totally upstaged by her friend's sound controlled machines. The Huxtable girl jealously accuses of her friend of cheating since her father is a engineer, but Cliff coaxes her into admitting that her own exhibit was really lame and her friend deserved to win.
