Verify Pre-approval Projects NOW!

busy computer beeThe SRC Committee is awaiting verification for adult sponsors for over 450 pre-approvals for projects involving tissue/cell lines, human subjects, live vertebrate animals, hazardous materials and/or microbes and will be reading the submissions all week. The re-submittal deadline for projects needing revision is December 8th.

The SRC cannot review your project until all verifications have been completed- a delay in getting verifications done delays when you can possibly begin experimentation! You need SRC approval to actually begin. If you see that an adult needs to verify her/his role, please contact that person to see if they got the verification email with link. Please tell them how important it is that the verification is done ASAP!!!

For more information, please check on our Pre-Approval Webpage

School Fees

This year, we are doing our utmost to insure that needy schools and students who really want to challenge themselves and enter our fair will not meet financial barriers.  Middle and High Schools may download and request a registration fee waiver if the school receives Title 1 funding, is located in LA County Supervisory District I and/or has a population of 80% under-represented minorities in science.  Please see the registration page for further details and a downloadable form for submission.

In order to encourage greater High School participation, the Los Angeles County Science and Engineering Fair this year is offering registration fees based on the number of projects a High School will send.  Please see the registration page for further details.

3.  Once the password is received, Site Coordinators need to go to the registration site and enter the email address and password.  From that point, Site Coordinators will follow the prompts and fill in the required information.  For returning Site Coordinators, the information should auto populate!  Once all information is provided, Site Coordinators must check each box to signify that they are aware of and agree to the rules and regulations of the Los Angeles County Science and Engineering Fair.


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.
