Annual Science Fair Seeks Volunteers

The MAST Institute needs approximately 100 volunteers to serve as safety inspectors and judges during the 43rd annual Long's Peak Science and Engineering Fair, Tuesday, Feb. 19, in the University Center.

Faculty, staff, undergraduate and graduate students and interested family members and friends are invited to volunteer. A two-hour minimum commitment is needed; half- and all-day volunteers are essential. Refreshments and lunch are provided for all volunteers.

Categories to be judged during the fair, which this year is presented by Noble Energy, are:

  • animal science, behavioral and social science
  • chemistry
  • earth and space science
  • energy and transportation
  • engineering
  • environmental science
  • math and computer science
  • medicine and health
  • microbiology
  • physics
  • plant sciences.

Up to 300 middle and high school students from Weld and Larimer counties are expected to present 260 projects.

The mission of the LPSEF is to increase student interest in science, technology, engineering and mathematics by providing a venue for middle and high school students to showcase their scientific and creative talents and interact with professionals from industry and academia, as well as the collegial population.

Contact Lori Ball via email or at 351-2976 to volunteer or for more information about the day's schedule and responsibilities. For more information about the fair, visit the LPSEF website.
