Central Sound Science and Engineering Fair
CSRSEF 2021 will be held virtually March 13-14, 2021 and is open to students in grades 9-12 living in King or Snohomish County.
In light of the global pandemic, the Society for Science & the Public, sponsor of Regeneron ISEF, encourages students and teachers to think outside the lab when approaching research! CSRSEF echoes their encouragement. We strongly recommend that all students pursue their scientific interests with safe methods.
Resources, advice, and stories of inspiration on completing research outside of a traditional laboratory environment can be found at research@home. Of particular note are the videos, Research at Home: Physical Science Edition and Research at Home: Life Science Edition.
PROJECT PRE-APPROVAL FORM
(STRONGLY Recommended before registration on STEMWizard)
To help students choose a project that doesn’t involve COVID risk, we have created a pre-approval guide. If your project involves work in a lab or close personal interaction with others, it may not be approved by SRC. If you have a special situation and would like to talk to CSRSEF Staff, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Register for the Fair!
Science fairs are gateways to a life-long fascination with science and with learning. Ask any scientist, engineer, or doctor about their science fair project and they invariably wax nostalgic and then explain how that event changed the course of their lives – regardless of whether they came home with awards. Science fairs put into practice the very skills that form successful academic and professional careers. It’s so much more than just a showcase of science experiments.
The Central Sound Regional Science and Engineering Fair provides an opportunity for high school students in the Washington State Puget Sound region to showcase their interest in scientific research or engineering design, receive community recognition for their achievements, and potentially advance to the partnered competitions at the state and international level.
