    Students at the science fair   

    Join us for the 32nd annual Chester County Science Research Competition (CCSRC)! Over 500 aspiring young scientists annually turn out for the competition.

    Now in its 32nd year, the CCSRC is dedicated to encouraging, supporting and developing scientific inquiry and discovery through individual and team science projects conducted by elementary, middle and high school students. We believe that students are the foundation of our nation's future. Their understanding and accomplishments in science and technology will prepare them to become the leaders of tomorrow and successful citizens in our technologically advancing society.
