Thank you for your interest in competing at the Alameda County Science and Engineering Fair 2018.

This registration page is ONLY for students whose projects undergo a pre-selection process by school or school district and ONLY if their projects involve any of the items listed in #2 above.

These types of projects require the fair's safety committee approval BEFORE you can start the project experimentation or else your project will not be eligible to compete.

Provide a response to all of the questions below BEFORE you begin the experiment and do this between the TIME FRAME of AUGUST 1, 2017 and JANUARY 10, 2018. NOTE: The earlier you do this the sooner you can receive approval to begin your project research and be eligible to participate at ACSEF.

TEAMS- only ONE team member needs to register your project for SRC/IRB approval.

If your project proposal is approved by the SRC you will then follow the Pathways to Registration located on https://acsef.zfairs.com
