Sarte family-webParental support is often a critical component of a great science fair project. Your motivation, praise and help in keeping your child aware of deadlines and mandatory project components will keep their project on track.  Providing access to resources for study, driving young researchers to field research sites and asking critical questions about their work are just a few of the many ways in which parents can assist.

Please remember, this is your child’s project – they need to find a topic that excites their passion for science and exploration. Parents should support, not drive, the project. Online resources below will help you spark your child’s natural curiosity and focus their organizational skills.  Be sure to check the Student pages for more resources, regulations and deadlines.  You can download the NEW 2015 LACSEF Student handbook here. To make sure your child’s project complies with all rules and regulations before arriving at the fair, please download the 2015 Student Registration Checklist as a guide.

Restaurants open for breakfast at Paseo Colorado, across from Convention Center
