2005 California State Science Fair Pictures

This page is a work in progress. While all of the photographs taken by the Fair's photographer have now been posted, many of the pictures still have unidentified students, judges, and parents. We need your help in identifying them. Also, presently only a few of the many photographs contributed by participants and their families have been posted and annotated. More will be posted during the coming days. If you can identify people in any photograph who are not named in the accompanying caption, please let us know with the link provided on that page, or send e-mail to CalifSF@usc.edu.

Do you have photographs of your time at the Fair? We welcome photographs from participants, especially since our photographers could not be in all places at all times. Please let us know and we may add your photos to the collection below.

An index of all photographs and identified persons is under construction.

The order of the photographs given below is intended to be approximately chronological, except within the project judging photographs which are ordered geographically.
