61st Colorado Science and Engineering
Hosted by the College of Natural Sciences Education & Outreach Center at Colorado State University.
The 61st Colorado Science and Engineering Fair (tentative schedule) will be held April 7 - 9, 2016 in the newly rennovated Lory Student Center at Colorado State University in Fort Collins.
To participate in the Colorado Science and Engineering Fair, a student must first be chosen by their Regional Science Fair. All students must also adhere by the rules and regulations regarding pre-college student research as set by the Society for Science & the Public and the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair's Scientific Review Committee.

Grand Award Judges - Conflict of Interest Policy
Starting with the 2014 CSEF all grand award judges must comply with the Conflict of Interest Policy to ensure a fair judging environment and avoid any possible conflicts of interest, perceived or actual. To this end, we ask that anyone involved in any capacity with a Regional Science Fair that is affiliated with CSEF (e.g., sponsor, teacher, relative of a student or judge at the regional level) disclose this information when they register as a grand award judge with CSEF.
Future CSEF Dates
The Colorado Science and Engineering Fair is scheduled based on the CSU academic calendar and is always the 12th week of the semester, which starts the day after Martin Luther King Day in January. Future CSEF dates should be:
2017: April 6 - 8
2018: April 5 - 7
2019: April 11 - 13
2020: April 9 - 11
Historical Items Needed!!
The Colorado State Science Fair, Inc. Board of Directors is looking to add to the CSEF archives, housed at the Morgan Library at Colorado State University. If anyone has items that might be a great addition to the collection, please contact Elemer
