WELCOME
  • Welcome to the 2014-2015 Chester County
    Science Research Competition (CCSRC) website. As
    we enter our 25th year, we are looking forward to
    providing the children of Chester County with an
    opportunity to independently research a
    scientific or mathematics topic of interest to
    them.
  • We are a regional fair that gives our
    students the opportunity to advance to both the
    Delaware Valley Science Fairs and the INTEL
    International Science and Engineering Fair.
  • The CCSRC is open to all children in grades
    four through twelve who attend public, private,
    parochial, and home schools (must be resident) in
    Chester County.
