The 69th annual Los Angeles County Science & Engineering Fair was held on Friday, March 29, 2019, at the Pasadena Convention Center.
This year, close to 1,000 students from over 100 public, parochial and private schools in the Los Angeles area participated in the oldest and largest regional science fair in the western United States.
The fair provides an opportunity for young people to apply creativity and critical thought to the solution of science, engineering and mathematics problems beyond the confines of the classroom.
As part of its community outreach, the Health Hazardous Materials Division sent Acting Assistant Chief Jojo Comandante to the fair as a judge. Assistant Chief Comandante has been a judge at the fair for the past eight years. He has a chemical engineering degree and was assigned to chair the general chemistry category for the fifth time.
The winners of the Los Angeles County Science Fair advance to the 2019 California Science & Engineering Fair which will be held on April 29 and 30 at Exposition Park’s California Science Center.
