BOULDER -- It's time for high-school students in Colorado and Wyoming to start planning their entries for the Colorado Computational Science Fair (CCSF). The deadline for project submissions is Friday, April 17. The fair will be held Saturday, May 9, at the National Center for Atmospheric Research in Boulder, Colorado. CCSF is cohosted by Colorado State University (CSU) and NCAR. The fair is funded by the National Science Foundation and the U.S. Department of Energy.

CCSF provides an opportunity for high-school students to exhibit projects in computational science (the use of computers to study scientific problems) or information technology (the use of computers to communicate information via the Internet or World Wide Web.) The fair is open to students enrolled in Colorado or Wyoming high schools. Middle- school students may participate and compete with high-school students. Projects may be submitted by individuals or teams. Guidelines and the application form are available on the Web.

NCAR is managed by the University Corporation for Atmospheric Research under sponsorship by the National Science Foundation.
