The California State Science Fair is the final science fair of the academic year for students throughout the State of California in grades 6 - 12, serving California's future scientists since 1952. It is hosted by the California Science Center (formerly, the California Museum of Science and Industry).
The 66th annual California State Science Fair will be held in the California Science Center on April 24-25, 2017. That's only 138 days away! This year we expect 1000 participants from 400 schools throughout the State will present 900 projects while competing for awards totaling $60,000.
Special thanks go to the following organizations for their generous donations and volunteer efforts.
Southern California Gas Company
THE MUSES of the California Science Center Foundation
