ACSEF is affiliated with the California State Science Fair (CSSF), the Intel International Science & Engineering Fair (ISEF), the International Sustainable World Energy Engineering Environment Project Olympiad (I-SWEEP) as well as the national Broadcom Masters competitions. Our Judging teams select projects which go on to compete in state, national and international competitions where our students are increasingly doing very well.
At these state, national and international competitions on the average merely 20% of the students entering come home with an award. With more than 1,780 students representing the very best of high school projects from over 75 nations entering into ISEF, 100% of our ACSEF participants received awards. Of the 1,000 participants at CSSF we are proud of our Alameda County student participants who attended with 47% of our participants earning awards.
Our single representative to I-SWEEP with 385 participants from 66 nations earned an honorable mention award and the Broadcom Masters competition 4 middle school projects qualified as semifinalist. Making them among the top 10% of middle school participants in the country. But whether or not a student wins, every student is celebrated and encouraged by the hundreds of attending students, parents, teachers, mentors, sponsors, judges, and members of the public.
