CENTRAL MARYLAND CHAPTER CHAPTER - Dec 14, 2017

Chapter Volunteers Judge More Than 1,500 Science Fair Projects

The chapter provided 20 volunteer judges for science fairs in December at Meade High School, MacArthur Middle School and, for the first time, Arundel Middle School. The students and staff members at each school put in a considerable amount of time and hard work preparing for these fairs. All three science fairs had significant student participation. Meade High School had more than 350 projects, MacArthur Middle had 1,000, and Arundel Middle had more than 200. Chapter volunteers scored selected projects, talked to the students, provided feedback and motivated them to continue their STEM activities. The chapter provided gift card awards to students selected by the judges for their outstanding projects and gift card donations to the schools to help defray the cost of the fair. Many thanks go to these individuals for their work in challenging students to grow and improve in STEM: Adam Eng, Alisha Adams, Ceil Paul, Damandeep Singh, Erica Richardson, Geoff Martino, Jason Freedman, Jean Paul Cameron, Jennifer Benson, Jennifer Kielman, Jessica Morgenstern, John Garcia, Karen Young, Kathleen Berganski, Kathy Dougan, Kristen Johnson, Mark McLarnon, Melissa Kittleson, Nicholas Fingland and Rhonda Johnson. The chapter's support to science fairs is a rewarding way to get students excited about science and engineering early in their education.
