Contra Costa Science and Engineering Fair needs judges - April 1st

Dear Friend of Education, Science and Engineering:

Please forward this invitation to your colleagues and anyone you believe would be interested in spending a day with our promising scientists and engineers.

The Contra Costa County 2011 Science and Engineering Fair day of judging is scheduled for April 1, 2011. The event will be held in Pittsburg and is graciously hosted again by our friends at Los Medanos College. All events will take place in the Science Building. Judges will be welcomed with a coffee and orientation at 7:00 a.m. and the day concludes around 3:00 p.m. for most participants.

Please check your calendar today and respond to the quick enrollment survey for judges using the NEW link below.

Judges will be reviewing student entries in six categories: math/computer sciences; biological including biochemistry, microbiology, zoology, botany, medicine, and health; physical including chemistry, earth and space, physics; behavioral/social sciences including gerontology; environmental sciences; and engineering.   

Every Intel ISEF-affiliated fair has its own methodology for judging projects at their fair. The International organization provides the following recommendations for judging criteria which the Contra Costa Science & Engineering Fair will follow. If you are interested in the role of the judges please click here.

In 2010 more students participated in the fair than previous years. We expect an increase in participation again this year. 

We look forward to your enrollment and participation on April 1, 2011.
