Science center needs judges for April fair
The Carnegie Science Center put out a call today for volunteers and judges for the 69th annual Pittsburgh Regional Science and Engineering Fair in April.
More than 1,000 students from Western Pennsylvania and Maryland are registered for the competition on April 4 and 5 at Heinz Field.
"This event has been growing for years, both in the number of student participants and the number of volunteers required to produce such a large event," Ron Baillie, Carnegie Science Center Chief Program Officer, said in a news release.
"We greatly appreciate our volunteers that take time out of their own lives to help us with the Science Fair," he said. "Without all of our volunteers this event would not have the strong tradition of nurturing the next generation of our region's science professionals."
Judges are sought for the biology, medicine/health/microbiology, chemistry and physics categories. Non-judging volunteers help students move and set-up their displays, direct visitors to the exhibits, inspect projects and serve at the information desk.
For information about volunteering, call Science Fair Director Lisa Kosick at 412-237-1534 or via e-mail .
