WE NEED YOUR HELP !!
On Saturday, May 16th, State Science Day 2015 will be hosted by The Ohio State University at the French Field House in Columbus – just up the road from the ‘Shoe. Since 1998, as part of its commitment to chemical education at all levels, the Columbus Section has sponsored awards for outstanding projects in the chemical sciences. The objective is to acknowledge and reward those students who have not only understood the scientific method, but also have exhibited creative thought. The section awards $2,500 in prizes to the various winners.
The number of projects entered is large (~140) and we need around 30 judges to evaluate them and decide on the winners. A general knowledge of some branch of chemistry is desirable, but being a chemist or ACS member is not required. And even having limited knowledge in one area can be supplemented and effectively utilized through interactions with judges having complementary skills.
Judging is scheduled to run from 9:00 a.m. to noon. Refreshments and orientation will occur from 7:00 to 8:30 a.m. You really need not be there much before 8:00 a.m. in order to get a clear idea of what will be happening that morning. You will be well-informed in advance. Previous judges have thoroughly enjoyed the experience.
Please consider taking one morning out of the entire year to offer encouragement and advice to someone who could be taking the first steps in an illustrious career. If you would enjoy the opportunity to meet the next generation of chemical scientists, e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org or call me at 937-707-9276.
