Happy Diamond Anniversary!!
Hosted by the College of Natural Sciences Education & Outreach Center at Colorado State University.
The 60th Colorado Science and Engineering Fair will be held April 9 - 11, 2015 in the newly rennovated Lory Student Center at Colorado State University in Fort Collins. Read about the history of the Colorado Science and Engineering Fair here.
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.

Donate or schedule your Colorado Gives Day donation today!
Mr. Struna will present on "The World of Energy" - where it comes from , how it is used, and the need for advances in science and technology as world-wide energy consumption growns in the 21st century. Topics included will be global energy supply and demand, the future of renewable energy, the role of hydrocarbons in the energy picture, responsible energy development in Colorado, the great "fracing debate" and the critical need for science and engineering talent to ensure that natural resource development and maintaining a pristine, sustainable environment are not mutually exclusive.
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:
2016: April 7 - 9
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
