WELCOME TO THE SUSSEX COUNTY SCIENCE FAIR
Welcome to the Sussex County Science Fair (SCSF) website.
The website is brand new this year even though in 2012 the SCSF celebrated their
20th anniversary. The website is designed to assist students, teachers, mentors and
parents in the development of a students research project in the areas of Science, Technology,
Engineering and Math (STEM). The website is also a resource for current and prospective science
fair judges and those individuals who might be considering volunteering their time and talents to
ensure the continued success of the science fair. All students from grades 6 to 12 throughout Sussex County, Delaware are eligible to participate.
The 2013 SCSF will take place at the Biden Center in the Cape Henlopen State Park on the
4th of March 2013. Participants will be judged for both grade level awards and Special awards.
Grade level awardees will be eligible to participate in the Delaware Valley Science Fair, our regional
fair, and the next step toward the International Science and Engineering Fair.
Congratulations to all of our 2012 SCSF Winners as well as to all of our Special Award Winners.
Congratulations also to the thirteen SCSF projects that competed and won additional awards and
honorable mentions at the 2012 Delaware Valley Science Fair (DVSF). A complete list of all the
2012 winners can be found in the Awards section on the website.
Special congratulations go to Bansri Manesh Patel a tenth grade student at Sussex Technical
High School who won 1st Place at both the SCSF and the DVSF. She went on to win 4th Place
at the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair that was held in Pittsburgh, PA.
The title of her award-winning project was Bisphenol A (BPA) Promotes Adipogenesis in 3-T3-LI Cells.
