The Central Sound Regional Science & Engineering Fair (CSRSEF) is an annual science and engineering competition for 9th-12th grade students in King and Snohomish Counties in Washington State. The CSRSEF encourages and rewards innovative student research and provides professional scientists and engineers the chance to interact with some of the best and brightest young students in the greater Seattle/Everett region.

It’s never too early: CSRSEF 2015 will be on Saturday, March 7th at Bellevue College! Registration will commence in October and will be open until February 11, 2015. 

Thank you for celebrating science in our region! Pictures from the 2014 CSRSEF are now up on our Flickr page! Check it out!

Congratulations to Grand Champion Meera Srinivasan (Environmental Sciences—Investigating the Sublethal Effects of Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons on Salmon, using Zebrafish as a Model Organism) and Runner up Alisha Saxena (Computer Science—Analyzing and Preventing Quick Response Code Based Malware and Phishing Attacks for Smartphones). Both women are from Interlake High School, and were winners at the state level in 2013. They will be representing Washington State students at the International Science and Engineering Fair on May 12-16 in Los Angeles!

Why do a Science or Engineering Fair Project?

The top 2 winners of the fair will win all-expense paid trips to compete in the Intel International Science & Engineering Fair in Pittsburgh, PA in May 2015.  Prizes will be awarded to category winners and several local and national organizations will be on hand to present special awards.

Benefits of Science Fair Projects:

  • Looks great on resumes and college applications
  • Develops skills in critical thinking, problem solving, communication, and organization
  • Meets many of the Washington State Science Learning Standards
  • Gives students the opportunity to explore their unique interests in science and engineering
  • Connects students to science and engineering professions
  • Makes learning engaging and fun!
