It is time to sign up as a Judge for the 2017 the Dupont Manual Regional Science and Engineering Fair. The Regional Fair will be held on March 11th, 2017 at the Health Sciences Building at Jefferson County Technical and Community College (JCTC). Your service as a Judge in this Regional Science Fair is critical to our efforts to promote independent research and inquiry by our students. If you have not done this before, you will be in for a good experience as you listen to young minds and their explorative interests.
Last year we had about 250 students at the Regional Fair. We sent 15 students to the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair in Phoenix, AR. Additionally we also had 50 students who qualified to participate in the State Science Fair in Richmond, KY. Our students won several category awards and Special Prizes. One of our students secured the Second place in the prestigious Siemens competition and received an invitation to the White House to participate in the Science Fair.
The fair provides an excellent opportunity to showcase their research and passion for science. Participation in the Science Fair opens the doors for our students to work outside their curriculum, pick an area of interest, and conduct scientific inquiry to seek answers to their research questions.
