The 63rd Colorado Science & Engineering Fair was held at Lory Student Center on the Colorado State University - Fort Collins campus April 5 - 7, 2018.

This year, 374 Colorado students presented 326 projects from 112 schools and 13 regions within the state. More than 220 professional scientists, engineers and mathematicians interviewed the students and evaluated their projects before selecting the Grand Award winners. In addition, over 75 businesses, professional societies, and government agencies provided more than 250 of their own representatives to judge exhibits based on their own criteria. They interviewed the student finalists and conferred Special Awards that included college scholarships, offers of summer employment, field trips, cash, and savings bonds. Over 1,200 people attended the Award Ceremony this year.

The 2018 CSEF had 23 sponsors: 3 Diamond Level; 1 Platinum Level; 2 Gold Level; 7 Silver Level; 1 Bronze Level; and 10 Copper Level. Additionally, there were 6 company contributors and 41 individual contributors.


In 2018, the CSEF was honored to have Dr. Janet McAllister, from the Centers for Disease Control in Fort Collins, CO as the guest speaker.
