WELCOME The Science Fair Executive Board and Advisory Committee welcome you to the 70th Annual Los Angeles County Science and Engineering Fair! This year, close to 1000 students from public, parochial, and private schools in Los Angeles County are participating in the oldest and largest regional science fair in the western United States. We celebrate science, technology, engineering, and mathematics in 36 Junior and Senior Division project categories from Animal Biology to Product Science. We welcome visitors to tour the exhibits and see the tremendous potential for outstanding future scientific work and accomplishment, as presented by Los Angeles County science students. MISSION and GOALS ϒ To provide an opportunity for young people to apply creativity and critical thought to the solution of science, engineering, and mathematics problems beyond the confines of the classroom. ϒ To publicly recognize the achievements of talented science, mathematics, and engineering students. ϒ To provide opportunities for scientists, engineers, and business leaders to network with the educational community, both at the teacher and student level, to exchange ideas and discuss career opportunities. ϒ To promote school-community cooperation in developing the scientific potential and communication skills of tomorrow’s leaders.

President's Message: It’s that time of year again, we celebrate the talents of our students in the fields of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math. This year, we celebrate our students and their passion and drive to continue to Dig Deep, Discover More. Our theme reflects the true nature of scientists and engineers who continue to question, research, and observe in order to discover more. I salute our students for their unwavering effort to further scientific knowledge and understanding. These students would not be here without the leadership and guidance of their teachers, family members, and all those who supported them in their endeavors as well as the amazing support of our partners. I thank all of you who helped each and every student whose name appears in this program and each organization that made a donation to help support us in our mission of supporting STEM education in Los Angeles County! Thank you all for being a part of our 70th Anniversary as we celebrate the 70th Annual Science and Engineering Fair and I wish all our students the best in their adventures yet to come. Nishat Alikhan, President Los Angeles County Science & Engineering Fair About the Theme: Los Angeles County Science & Engineering Fair For the 2020 Fair we asked students from the 2019 Fair to suggest possible themes for the 2020 fair. Once we chose a theme, we then asked participating schools to send in art to be used for the different aspects of the fair. The Theme was created by Brandon Stahl from Intellectual Virtues Academy In all the subjects we study in school, we strive to gain a thorough understanding of the information. Scientists and engineers are no different. As scientists, we are not satisfied with the easy answers. Instead, we create experiments because we want to discover the answers to unknown questions or investigate new solutions to problems. New inventions are created that ultimately change the world we live in. As we attempt to gain a deeper understanding with our investigations, we often realize our results lead to more questions. I imagine gaining new knowledge and new discoveries as a shovel full of dirt that is being moved. With every shovel full of dirt that I move, my pile of knowledge is getting bigger. However, the hole that I am digging from is also getting larger. That hole represents all of the new questions that now need to be researched. Every time we dig to gain a deeper understanding, we discover more that needs to be learned. Artwork was created by Audrey Pranasky from Crescenta Valley High School Through my submission, I wanted to convey the many applications of science and engineering as well as highlight the teamwork that goes into them. I felt the best way to explain their potential was with a pinwheel galaxy, because, like space, the possibilities of science are seemingly endless. The idea for the people and the lightbulb came next. I wanted to illustrate the different facets of research and roles people play in production. I chose tools I was familiar with: a microscope, flask, and micropipette. The clasped hands within the lightbulb are meant to further emphasize themes of teamwork. To finish it, I added the symbols within the galaxy to represent the many science and engineering fields.

Fair sponsors want all students to have the best opportunity to compete for the annual awards. During the time that the Fair is open to the general public, the perception of the projects must be positive and precautions must be taken for the security of each project. All projects at the Los Angeles County Science & Engineering Fair must abide by the following: 0. Present an experimentally based research design exemplifying the science processes or engineering design/inventions. 1. Be carefully prescreened and approved online by the School Site Coordinator. The Los Angeles County Science & Engineering Fair Judges’ Rubric lists the criteria used to evaluate the projects. Online Pre-approval of project proposals is necessary for projects involving tissue/cell lines, human subjects, live vertebrate animals, hazardous materials and/or microbes 2. Clearly distinguished between the work of the student entrant and the work of others. Students who have prepared a project in conjunction with research participation opportunity in industry, a university, hospital or institution other then their school must show only the student’s research in their project display. Students may mention the relationship to the research of others in notebooks only if they clearly specify the assistance received and the role and contributions of others in research related to the project. Most projects being performed at outside institutions will need online preapproval for the 5 categories listed above, including electronic verification by supervising professionals. 3. Be original and distinct. Identical project/data may not be submitted by a school under separate judging divisions. Likewise, the same unmodified project cannot be submitted multiple years. 4. Be within the total quota for each school. Quotas will be announced in advance of the Fair. If additional applications are submitted, schools will be contacted and each school will determine which projects are the official entries. If excess entries are initially overlooked, only a number corresponding to the quota will be judged. Those to be judged will then be selected at the discretion of the Science Fair Committee. 5. Schools need to be electronically enrolled for the fair through the www.lascifair.org website. Schools should avoid enrollment until it is certain that their students’ projects will be completed in time, ready to be registered online and arrive at the Fair. 6. Student and project information will be submitted online by students only in grades 6-12 or with an age equivalent to those in grades 6-12. Team members MUST attend the same school, for oversight by the Site Coordinator. 7. Be registered and setup at the Fair and picked up only within the designated hours. Early entries will not be accepted. Entries will be accepted and project pick up will be permitted only when a member of the Los Angeles County Science Fair Committee is present. 8. Use illustrations or photographs ONLY of microbes, animals and plants for displays. The display of bacterial cultures and live or preserved animals and plants will not be permitted. 9. Remain at the Fair during the day scheduled for judging interviews. The only exception to this rule is for students who must take projects to the International Fair, if their departure day/time overlaps the time that the Los Angeles County Science & Engineering Fair is open. To ensure security during project removal, the authorized time for pick up will be strictly followed. The Fair is not responsible for projects left after the designated time. 10. Use a title that provides the viewer with a clear concept of the subject and procedure of the research. Present the steps of the scientific methodology used, organized from left to right and top to bottom. Use metric units for all measurements. Have all values on charts and graphs correctly labeled. Present all narrative writing in a legible manner with correct grammar, punctuation and spelling. Carefully review the category descriptions and select the proper one for the project. 11. Fit within the prescribed space limitations – no larger than 76 cm (2.5 ft. deep (front to back), 122 cm (4 ft.) wide (side to side) and 284 cm (6.5 ft.) high (if placed on table) or 274 cm. (9 ft.) high (if placed on floor) Oversized projects will be screened at the door and refused entry. 12. Be able to support their weight and not collapse due to inadequate construction. Any project that does not meet the minimum standards for construction will be removed from the display area and not judged. 13. Display photographs that do not show procedures harmful to the health and wellbeing of animals. (For instance, the performance or results of surgical procedures will not be shown.) Those projects not in compliance will be removed from the display areas and will not be judged. 14. Do not display items you cannot afford to lose. There is a system for bringing in items to show the judges. Have notebooks and other paperwork tethered to the display board. The Fair will not be responsible if these items are missing from projects. 15. A computer may be brought to the display for the judging interview if the student assumes full responsibility for the computer. Computers should not be left at a project if the student is not there to ensure its safekeeping. 16. Give attention to all considerations of safety. Projects that use 120-volt electrical current must have all wires and connections well shielded. Those projects not in compliance will be screened at the door and refused entry. 17. Adhere to all of the rules and regulations of the Fair and all relevant federal, state and local laws. Projects not in compliance will be screened at the door and refused entry. 18. Be submitted with the understanding that decisions of the Los Angeles County Science & Engineering Fair Committee are final.
