All Science Fair students will compete in a schoolwide Science Fair early January 2022 with the top projects moving on to the Chester County Rorke-Adams Fair(grades 6-12) March 8, 2022. Winning projects from the County Fair will participate in Delware Valley Science Fairs (DVSF) April 5-8, 2022. DVSF awardees will be eligible to compete at Regeneron International Science and Engineering Fair (ISEF) in Atlanta, Georgia. May 8-13 2022.

    All individual and team projects must submit the completed ISEF forms to the Science Fair Coordinator before research can start. Please note that team projects are not eligible to compete at the May 2022 Regeneron International Science and Engineering Fair this year. Projects involving animals, hazardous material, DNA, etc must submit their ISEF forms to the Science Fair Coordinator by Nov 12 for Scientific Rules Committee review and approval. All other projects can submit ISEF forms at any time prior to January 2022. However, the proposed research and ISEF paperwork must be approved before research can start! Below is additional information and helpful links for all student proposals.

    A Science Fair Family Workshop, hosted by the Chester County Intermediate Unit, will be held at the TCHS Brandywine Campus on Boot Road on Saturday, October 23 (10:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.) and Thursday, October 28 (6:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m.).
