A Call For California State Science Fair Alumni
 
The California Science Center and California State Science Fair Board are putting a call out to former participants in the California State Science Fair. The alumni search will provide information on the chosen professions of former State Science Fair participants and assist in determining how many chose to pursue careers in science and engineering.
 
Fair alumni are asked to contact the Fair at (213) 744-7530. If participants also have a personal Internet home page, they are requested to send them to the Fair's Web site at www.casciencectr.org/CSSF. The personal home pages will be listed on the official California Science Fair site.
 
It is estimated that more than 20,000 students have participated in the fair since its inception in 1952. Students, from throughout the state, qualify at the county level and advance to compete in the State Science Fair, hosted by the California Science Center. Over 300 California scientists from private industry and higher education judge Science Fair entries in 18 subject-based categories.
 
California State Science Fair celebrates its 50th year in 2001. The next Fair is scheduled to take place at the California Science Center and Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County on May 21 and 22. More than $40,000 in award prizes will be given to the winners.
 
Information on the Science Fair is available on the California Science Center Web site at: www.casciencectr.org/CSSF.
