New dates and information for the 2015 fair will be coming before the end of June. Thanks for making the 2014 Los Angeles County Science & Engineering Fair one of the best ever for our students.  The Fair cannot happen without your hard work and dedication to good science – we applaud you!

ATTENTION:  Read the video directions carefully and watch the video before attempting to register!   Directions for the Step-by-Step Online Registration Process video below:

For BEST quality, once you click on the “play” arrow, hover your mouse pointer over the “gear” icon that will pop up on the lower right of the screen (it will say”change quality”) and select the highest quality (720p HD.)  You can then reduce the size of the Registration Page window on your computer screen and open a second window for the School/Site Coordinator Online Registration Site link below. By having both screens open, side-by-side, you can follow along with the video directions, pause the video and perform the needed actions at the Registration Site itself. 

If prefer, you can view the directions directly through YouTube by clicking on the YouTube button on the lower right of the video screen (like you did to change the quality.)  You can then use a second computer or tablet to do the actual registering while you watch the directions on the first device….  Remember, you have to wait up to 72 hours to receive your computer-generated password before completing your registration.  SAVE THE PASSWORD – it cannot be changed.
