Each school will submit a registration form and $50 for each grade that is housed in the school.

For example: HS contains grades 9-12

The cost is $200.00

Each school in the district must submit a separate

registration form and check for the correct amount.

Fee Structure for 2012-13

We would expect that each school would provide 2 judges to assist in the judging of projects. This does not need to be YOU! It could be a parent who has a professional background in science or engineering or an administrator or another teacher from the building!

We would also hope to have some volunteering assistance during the fair itself.

(pages 9-10 in the booklet)

Other expectations for CASEF

CASEF has an on-going review of the judging instrument as well as the process itself.

Each student should be aware of the rubric which will be used to judge their project.

Notice the value placed upon the journal!

Judging Rubric

p. 11-13 in the handout

Please make sure to insure that all of your students have this important information. This journal should include everything from DAY 1.

Feel free to copy these pages for students, if you wish.

Lab Notebooks

P.14 in your packet.

CASEF will maintain the same 15 categories that we have in the past but this listing may help you to determine the correct placement of projects in our fair.

2013 ISEF Categories

In CASEF, we will be tweaking some of our processes on judging day but there are no main changes.

For ISEF, the only changes deal with how the researchers must deal with the death of a research animal during the course of their experimentation.

USE OF AN IRB & Risk Assessment (Form 3)

Handout pages 15-16

2013 CASEF and ISEF changes

As we began in recent years, each participating school will submit their students’ registration information electronically and will be responsible for proofreading what they enter.

This information ALONG with the student forms are needed in the office by the February 8 deadline.

2013 Project Registration for CASEF


Registration packet

All CASEF/ISEF forms are available in a format allowing students to type directly on the forms.

2013 casef
Students will be assigned to stand by their projects during an assigned time period.

Students will be judged by category judges at some point during their assigned time slot.

During this time, students may also be interviewed by special award judges.
