Volunteers, judges and mentors are needed for the Central New York Science and Engineering Fair (CNYSEF) sponsored by the Museum of Science and Technology (MOST) on Sunday, March 26, 2017

Volunteers, judges and mentors are needed for the Central New York Science and Engineering Fair (CNYSEF) sponsored by the Museum of Science and Technology (MOST) on Sunday, March 26, 2017 at the SRC Arena on the Onondaga Community College campus. This year, students from ten counties will compete in two divisions, the junior fair for 4th-8th graders and the senior fair for 9th-12th graders. Judges don't need to be experts in science to listen as the students demonstrate how much they have learned and accomplished. A continental breakfast, lunch and training will be provided for the judges and volunteers. Those interested in volunteering can apply online here. Reply to Earl Turner if you have any questions.

The encouragement and interest shown by volunteers and judges is an essential part of the student's science fair experience. Help inspire our future generation of scientists and engineers!

Science Fair Judges Needed!

Syracuse Academy of Science Charter School (SASCS) is a tuition-free, public school offering a college preparatory curriculum in science, technology, engineering and mathematics. SASCS serves students from the city of Syracuse students, as well as students from other districts in Onondaga County, with an enrollment of 400 in grades 8-12.

Through its highly specialized curriculum, SASCS also aims to produce career-driven young leaders with the preparation and drive to achieve their goals, particularly in STEM disciplines. SASCS believes that our science fair is one of the most important parts of this process. We believe students gain a greater appreciation of science by engaging in original, hands-on research, writing, and representation. Our science fair will include more than 50 projects. 

The details for this program are as follows:

Monday  – January 23rd 2017
· Luncheon for the Judges: 12:30 p.m. – 1:00 p.m.
