Very Exciting News...The Alameda County Science and Engineering Fair (ACSEF), is coming into it's what will prove to be another highly successful second year! ACSEF provides a forum for stimulating student interest in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (S.T.E.M.). Middle and high school students from home school, charter, public, private and parochial schools within Alameda County are eligible to participate in the fair. ACSEF is a 501 (c) 3 non-profit organization - Tax ID # 45-1800245 and we welcome your support of the science students from Alameda County.
Participation in a science fair research project is the ULTIMATE in S.T.E.M. education and experience! We encourage each of the Alameda County school district Superintendents, teachers, students and parents to become a partner in promoting ACSEF participation in all of the county schools.
ACSEF was formed by expanding the Intel ISEF affiliated Tri Valley Science and Engineering Fair (TVSEF) which has successfully served students living in the southeastern cities of Alameda County for the past 15 years in the cities of Livermore, Dublin and Sunol. The new and expanded ACSEF will showcase student research projects done by students from all parts of Alameda County.
ACSEF encourages middle and high school students who attend school or are home schooled in the cities & towns of Alameda, Albany, Albrae, Ashland, Baumberg, Berkeley, Carpenter, Castro Valley, Cherryland, Curtner, Dresser, Dublin, Eberly, Emeryville, Fairview, Fremont, Hayward, Jarvis Landing, Livermore, Mount Eden, Mulford, Mulford Gardens, Newark, Niles Junction, Oakland, Pabrico, Piedmont, Pleasanton, San Leandro, San Lorenzo, Shinn, Snoboy, Sunol, Trevarno, Ulmar, and Union City to participate in the SECOND ANNUAL ACSEF March 8-9, 2013 at the Alameda County Fairgrounds in Pleasanton, CA.
ACSEF is affiliated with the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair (Intel ISEF), the world's largest pre-college celebration of high school science competition and the California State Science Fair (CSSF), which is California's most elite science competition for middle and high school student projects.
The ACSEF Director Patti Carothers, along with the Scientific Review Committee, is available throughout the summer and school year to offer advice and guidance to students and teachers as they begin to think about project topics and research.
ACSEF board of directors is proud to be a part of this new and broader reaching Alameda County science fair. We are excited to bring the opportunity for middle and high school students and teachers in the county to become involved in science research projects.
We are delighted with the opportunity to work with MESA Mathematics Engineering Science Achievement. MESA engages thousands of educationally disadvantaged students so they excel in math and science and graduate with math-based degrees. We welcome the opportunity of partnership with additional agencies within the county to encourage increased hands on science for underserved students..
We welcome your volunteer support, financial donations and award sponsorships.
