CENTRAL MARYLAND CHAPTER CHAPTER - Dec 12, 2016

Volunteers Judge Local Science Fairs

The chapter served as volunteer judges at two science fairs in December. Nine volunteers judged the MacArthur Middle School air on the grounds of Fort Meade, and fourteen volunteers braved the frigid temperatures to judge the Meade Senior High School fair. Judges were given 5-10 projects to assess. The goal was to determine if the students understand the scientific experimentation methods. Chapter Science Fair Chair Kathleen Berganski said, "Many of the students are really nervous during the interview process so we try to ease their nerves while we discuss the projects with them. We want to motivate them to continue on with STEM work. It is typically a very rewarding activity for students and judges alike."
