After three years of virtual fairs, The 2023 Los Angeles County Science and Engineering Fair (LACSEF) will be held in person!!!

We expect more than 700 students to participate in this fair and we are looking to recruit about 300 judges to interview the students and evaluate their projects. These judges will need to be available in person from 7AM to about 4 PM on Monday, March 13th, 2023 at the Shrine Auditorium and Expo Center in downtown Los Angeles.

Anyone with an engineering or a science background (any of the sciences including ecology, psychology, math and computer science) can serve as a judge. An undergrad in science can judge for the middle school level and if the individual has masters or PhD with research experience, can serve as a judge for the senior level - high school projects.

Students will submit their work online 10 days prior to the event and the judges will have access to review their video presentations, read their abstracts, and do the initial evaluation before meeting the students in person on March 13th, 2023.

Students’ interaction with the judges is the single most memorable experience for these young scientists!! It is also a very rewarding experience for the judges.

We truly appreciate your assistance in this matter. If you are interested in volunteering, please go to https://www.lascifair.org/how-to-help-be-a-judge/ to register. Please share this with your peers.

Mission Statement

LACSEF’s mission is to expose as many Los Angeles County students as possible to inquiry-based science and design-thinking based engineering that extends beyond the classroom through the development and presentation of science, technology, engineering and/or math (STEM) research. The fair is designed to expose participants and the general community to science and engineering through a science fair competition, hands-on activities and workshops, and an exhibition that is open to the public.

Description

Our primary program is an annual science and engineering fair, which we have conducted since 1950. The multi day event is designed to expose students and the general community to inquiry based science and design thinking engineering that takes them beyond the classroom and provides them the opportunity to interact with experts in their respective fields (judges). In this regard, they learn to describe their research, explain the methodology they used, present their findings, and field questions about their project. Participants receive feedback from the judges on how the procedures, design, testing, and analysis could be improved so they could adjust their methodology and build upon their research for future competitions or the next year’s fair. As a result of this experience, many participants "catch the STEM bug" and continue to expand their science and engineering education and later pursue STEM majors in college.
