60th Hawaii State Science & Engineering Fair:
The Annual Hawaii State Science Fair is coming up in April. The Annual Hawaii State Science & Engineering Fair is coming up in April. What is the Science Fair? School students from around the State conduct scientific research, prepare a display board explaining the research, and present their findings to individual scientists, community groups and related organizations at the annual fair. Competition begins at the school level where advancement of selected projects move on to District Fairs. A percentage of selected projects at District are given the opportunity to compete for cash, scholarships and other awards at the State Science Fair where the top 5 projects are selected to represent the State of Hawaii at the International Science & Engineering Fair (ISEF) held in May of each year. Currently, there are 5,904 participants at 107 Public and Private School fairs. 1,193 participants at 9 District Fairs (Central, Hawaii East, Hawaii West, HAIS, Honolulu, Kauai, Leeward, Maui, Windward), Which come down to a couple hundred at the Annual State Fair.
Each year the EARC sends a team of Judges from the club to the Fair and pick 3 winners to receive a cash award from the KH6IJ scholarship fund which the club maintains for just this purpose. The judging team looks for any project that is radio related and has a chance to speak with the student and let them present their project to the team. The team will then deliberate and pick 3 winners, 1st place, 2nd place and 3rd place to present a cash award to.
If you would like to be a part of the EARC judging team, the date is April 11, 2017 from 8:30 am to 12:00 pm at the Hawaii Convention Center, Ground Floor, Exhibit I. For more information, contact Wayne.
