The 2021 ISEF Rules and guidelines and the 2020-2021 ISEF forms can be found on the Student’s Main Page of the www.pprsef.org website. Please contact us at pprsef.colorado@gmail.com if your student is starting a project so we can be sure the proper forms and procedures are followed.

Please be aware that registration closes after January 20 and forms will be due by January 28, 2021.

Where:

The 2021 PPSEF will be held virtually, with category judging taking place on Saturday, February 20, 2021.


Who:

Any secondary student (grades 6 –12) in Elbert, El Paso, Park or Teller County can enter the PPRSEF. Please note there is no requirement to enter or place in a school or area science fair to enter the PPRSEF.

Why:

The PPRSEF offers regional individuals and teams of secondary students a place to enter science, engineering, math, and computer science projects of their own creation in an annual Regional Science Fair competition with a chance for project recognition and awards. Qualified projects are invited to attend the Colorado Science and Engineering Fair and the InternationalScience and Engineering Fair. (The CSEF and ISEF will be held virtually in 2021.)

Awards:

In addition to the place awards (cash) in specific categories, there are more than 40 special awards (cash or prizes) presented each year.


Resources:

A good starting place is www.pprsef.org website or the PPRSEF SRC at
pprsef.colorado@gmail.com Resources can also be found on the ISEF website: https://www.societyforscience.org/isef/international-rules/

The Colorado Science and Engineering Fair website http://www.csef.colostate.edu/ has links for both students and teachers,
including links to forms and rules.

The PPRSEF Board members would be happy to help with
classroom presentations, safety issues or other questions. You may contact us at pprsef.colorado@gmail.com

We hope you will encourage students to participate, even if science projects are not a part of your curriculum. If you do a science project unit, please consider scheduling it at a time that would coincide with the fair.
