High School

Behavioral/Social Science

  • The science or study of the thought processes and behavior of humans and other animals in their interactions with the environment studied through observational and experimental methods.

Biology

  • The study of  living organisms.

Chemistry/Biochemistry

  • The science of the composition, structure, properties, and reactions of matter, especially of atomic and molecular systems.
  • The study of the chemical substances and vital processes occurring in living organisms, the processes by which these substances enter into, or are formed in, the organisms and react with each other and the environment.

Environmental Sciences

  • The analysis of existing conditions of the environment.

Engineering

  • The application of scientific and mathematical principles to practical ends such as the design, manufacture, and operation of efficient and economical structures, processes, and systems.

Math/Computers

  • The study of information processes, the structures and procedures that represent processes, and their implementation in information processing systems. It includes systems analysis and design, application and system software design, programming, and datacenter operations.
  • The study of the measurement, properties, and relationships of quantities and sets, using numbers and symbols. The deductive study of numbers, geometry, and various abstract constructs, or structures. Mathematics is very broadly divided into foundations, algebra, analysis, geometry, and applied mathematics, which includes theoretical computer science.

Medicine/Health

  • The science of diagnosing, treating, or preventing disease and other damage to the body or mind.

Physics

  • Physics is the science of matter and energy and of interactions between the two. Astronomy is the study of anything in the universe beyond the Earth.

Science

  • Science is a systematic enterprise that builds and organizes knowledge in the form of testable explanations and predictions about the universe.

Technology

  • Technology is the sum of techniques, skills, methods, and processes used in the production of goods or services or in the accomplishment of objectives, such as scientific investigation. Technology can be the knowledge of techniques, processes, and the like, or it can be embedded in machines to allow for operation without detailed knowledge of their workings. Systems (e. g. machines) applying technology by taking an input, changing it according to the system's use, and then producing an outcome are referred to as technology systems or technological systems.
WaCSEF will be affiliated with the International Science and Engineering Fair (ISEF); the world's largest pre-college celebration of science.
