The 64th Colorado Science & Engineering Fair was held at Lory Student Center on the Colorado State University - Fort Collins campus April 11 - 13, 2019.

This year, 374 Colorado students presented 316 projects from 112 schools and 13 regions within the state. More than 220 professional scientists, engineers and mathematicians interviewed the students and evaluated their projects before selecting the Grand Award winners. In addition, over 75 businesses, professional societies, and government agencies provided more than 250 of their own representatives to judge exhibits based on their own criteria. They interviewed the student finalists and conferred Special Awards that included college scholarships, offers of summer employment, field trips, cash, and savings bonds. Over 1,200 people attended the Award Ceremony this year.

The 2018 CSEF had 23 sponsors: 4 Diamond Level; 3 Platinum Level; 2 Gold Level; 9 Silver Level; 1 Bronze Level; and 7 Copper Level. Additionally, there were 7 company contributors and 32 individual contributors.


This year, the CSEF hosted a showing of the National Geographic documentary film "Science Fair" followed by a panel of previous Intel ISEF participants (student and teacher).

About the Film:
Hailed by critics as "immensely likeable," "brilliant and quirky" and an "ode to the teenage science geeks on who our future depends," and winner of the audience award at Sundance and SXSW. National Geographic Documentary Films' SCIENCE FAIR follows nine high school students from around the globe as they navigate rivalries, setbacks and, of course, hormones, on their journey to compete at The [Intel] International Science and Engineering Fair. As 1,700 of the smartest, quirkiest teens from 78 different countries face off, only one will be named Best in Fair. The film, from Fusion Media and directed by the DuPont Award-winning and Emmy-nominated documentary filmmaking team Cristina Costantini and Darren Foster, offers a front seat to the victories, defeats and motivations of an incredible group of young men and women who are on a path to change their lives, and the world, through science.

About the Panel:
Loree' Harvey is a teacher at Monte Vista High School and was the CSEF Teacher of the Year in 2014. Loree' has sponsored many middle and high school students over the years and many of them have attended the Intel ISEF.

Molly Nehring is a senior at Monte Vista High School , was the 3rd Place Senior Division Best of CSEF award winner in 2017 and an Intel ISEF finalist in 2016, 2017 & 2018.

Casey Shaw is a freshman at Colorado State University from Joes, Colorado, was the 5th Place Senior Division Best of CSEF award winner in 2018 and an Intel ISEF finalist in 2015, 2016, 2017, & 2018.
