Santa Barbara County Science Fair

2014 Science Fair


The 2014 Science Fair was a success.  We had 114 projects and 127 students competing for almost $4,000 in prizes and for advancement to the California State Science Fair.  A full list of the winners is available here.  We have high hopes for the 24 projects going on to compete in Los Angeles in April and will post those results here as soon as they become available.

The SBCEO has put together a nice video describing the various ways to participate in the Science Fair. If you have questions about competing or volunteering, this is worth watching.

 

You Can Help


The Santa Barbara County Science Fair is a community sponsored and organized event.  If you would like to support the Fair, there are a variety of ways you can help:

  • Judges are the basis for putting on the science fair and we can never have too many.  Judges spend the morning of the Fair interviewing the student-scientists about their work to generate the rankings.  If you have a background in the sciences and can spare four hours on a Friday morning for some fun, we could use the help.  For more information, please email the Judging Coordinator.
  • The organizing committee meets several times over the year in order to plan the details of the Fair.  The members are individuals and representatives from businesses or community groups that are dedicated to raising the profile and quality of science education in the County.  If you or your organization would like to get involved, please contact us.
  • In addition to awarding medals and qualifying projects for the California State Science Fair, competators are also vying for a variety of special awards.  These are donated by members of the community and generally focus on a scientific area or discipline (i.e. watershed, evolutionary biology, electronics, etc.) important to the donor.  If you are interested in participating by sponsoring a special award, please contact us.
  • Finally, we also need donations to make it all possible.  While the fair is organized by volunteers, there are substantial costs for hosting the event.  If you would like to make a tax deductable donation to the Fair, you can do so via the PayPal link at right.
