2017 Abstracts- Click Here to see if we received your abstract.
An abstract is a brief, written explanation of the research project. The abstract contains a succinct description of the project’s purpose, the procedures followed, the data collected, and the conclusions reached. This must all be accomplished in 250 words or less.
Every project at our science and engineering fair is required to have an abstract submitted as part of registration and on the project display board. Additionally, while not a requirement, extra copies of the abstract should be available on your table for preliminary and finalist judges.
In submitting the abstract you are attesting that the nature of the work and your involvement is accurately described. If some portion is not your work, it should not be part of your abstract unless you cite the assistance. It is OK to receive help with the project but that help must be acknowledged. Please read the CSF Ethics Statement.

Abstracts are due by March 1. They will be posted on the CSEF website for reading by our judges. Do not submit until your research is complete. Yes, judging as previewing, starts before you arrive at the Fair.
