CASAC promotes math and science education and hands-on learning through efforts by teachers, local businesses and community leaders. CASAC’s premiere event is the annual Science Fair, held to give students of the Carlisle Area School District and South Middleton School District the opportunity to learn and share what they’ve discovered.

Each year, over 600 students enter the CASAC Science Fair, where they have the opportunity to show their understanding of the scientific method and which steps are required to solve or further investigate a problem that intrigues them.  CASAC also sponsors an annual awards dinner at which we present medals to the top science students in each grade or subject.  In addition, CASAC awards two college scholarships to senior high school students who wish to further their understanding of science through a college education.


If you were unable to pick up your science fair project on Monday January, 25th, your project has been placed in storage at Carlisle High School. If you wish to retrieve your project, please contact Carlisle High School before the end of the school day on January 29th.
Results for the 2016 CASAC Science Fair are now available!

Please see the Science Fair Results page for all results.
The 2016 CASAC Awards Banquet will be held on Wednesday May 11, 2016 at the St. Patrick Parish Activity Center.

Address: 87 Marsh Drive, Carlisle, PA 17015
