On Friday, February 24th, 2017, scientists and engineers arrived at the Barnwell-Guinyard Middle School to serve as judges for more than 300 science fair posters made by students in the 7th and 8th grade. Steve Smith coordinates and leads this event at the Middle School every year and collectively recruit scientists and engineers from local area societies and committees to assist in helping students better prepare their final science poster displays for the larger area science fair. Judges were paired up so that each member was from a different area of science and were provided a systematic report form to fill out for a group of projects based on the subject of project entry. A document was provided to judges as an aid for providing points for having items required in the guidelines.
Snacks, beverages, and a very heartwarming lunch were kindly provided to the volunteers.
ACS-SR members in attendance included Ashlee Rae Swindle (Dailey) and Robin Brigmon.
