The California Science Center will host the 65th Annual California State Science Fair in Los Angeles on May 23 and 24, 2016.

The California State Science Fair, established in 1952, is the culminating science fair of the academic year for California students in grades 6 through 12 who have won in regional competitions.  The event will be held at the California Science Center in Exposition Park. 

This year, we expect over 1,000 students to exhibit their research and explain their projects to more than 300 professional scientists and engineers who volunteer as Science Fair judges.  The students’ efforts exemplify their interest in and commitment to scientific research.  The students, that represent some of California’s best and brightest, compete for top honors and over $50,000 in prize money. This event highlights the achievements of California students and promotes the mission of the Science Center to nurture an interest in science in all learners.
