Each year, the OCSEF sends a number of projects to the California State Science Fair (CSSF). This year, the CSSF will accept 81 projects from the OCSEF. Based upon their performance (place), the OCSEF chooses the first, most or all of the second, and occasionally a few third place project (chosen randomly from the Senior Division) to qualify for the CSSF. The following projects (indicated by the student's and partner's names involved in the project) are qualified to compete at the CSSF. We encourage you to apply to the CSSF before the deadline.
Stuti Agrawal and Anshika Agrawal
Anne Berg and Sabrina Asefi
Alexis Chirco and Olivia Kim
Caleb Laures Empig
Heather Anne George
Samantha Mah-Gersting and Mandy Chan
Christina Miles and Haley Spranger
Hannah Park and Elizabeth Chang
In addition to qualified projects, the OCSEF selects a small number of additional projects as alternates (usually chosen from the third place award winners). In the event a qualified project is not able to attend the CSSF or misses the deadline, an alternate project will be selected. The following projects have been selected as alternates to the CSSF.
