CSRA Regional Science and Engineering Fair

March 13, 2021

The CSRA Regional Science and Engineering Fair is scheduled for March 13, 2021! The year's event will be held virtually. Science Fair participants will upload project materials into a virtual platform called RocketJudge. This platform also allows for high school students to virtually meet with judges for the required interview.

Savannah River Nuclear Solutions, LLC, in partnership with the University of South Carolina Aiken (USCA) and the Ruth Patrick Science Education Center, proudly sponsors the CSRA Regional Science and Engineering Fair.

Project registration is now open for this year's fair using the links below! All project materials must be submitted electronically. Please contact Taylor Rice at for specific project requirements.

Elementary and Middle School Division Project Registration:

High School Division Project Registration:

At the High School Level, research forms are required! Depending on the field of study, this may also apply at the middle school level.

It is the responsibility of the student and the Adult Sponsor to evaluate the study to determine necessary forms and/or approval prior to experimentation, especially projects using human participants, vertebrate animals, or potentially hazardous biological agents*. Some projects require approval by the Regional Fair Scientific Review Committee (SRC). Contact Taylor Rice at for SRC approval. The following required forms and guidelines help students ensure that the research they are planning is safe, ethical, and approved by a parent, a teacher, and field experts. Students and mentors are strongly encouraged to use the Required Forms Wizard tool to help determine what forms are required for the project.

Forms Required for EVERY High School Project:
1 Checklist for Adult Sponsor The Adult Sponsor ensures that experimentation is within local, state, and Federal laws and Intel ISEF rules and that forms are completed by other adults (e.g. Qualified Scientist) as required.
1A Student Checklist Research Plan/Project Summary Research Plan/Project Summary See link for Research Plan/Project Summary instructions. The Research Plan is your first step.
1B Approval Form Section 1 is signed and dated before experimentation by Student and Parent. Section 2 is for signatures by the Regional SRC prior to experimentation depending on project*. Section 3 is signed at the Regional Fair.
Media Release (required) All projects require this media release.
