LOCAL YOUNG SCIENTISTS TO COMPETE FOR AWARDS, PRIZES AT REGIONAL SCIENCE AND ENGINEERING FAIR

More than 300 young scientists from schools around the region will gather at the Anne Arundel County Regional Science and Engineering Fair to be held at North County High School next week to present their science research.

At the fair, which runs from March 5 through 7, students will have the opportunity to win hundreds of awards and prizes from organizations such as Anne Arundel Community College, ARINC, the Armed Forces, Johns Hopkins University, Lockheed Martin, Marine Science and Technology, Northrop Grumman, and Scope-Tech. The Grand Prize winner(s) will compete at the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair (Intel ISEF) in Phoenix, Ariz., in May 2013 for more than $4 million in awards and scholarships.

“These student researchers represent our best promise of an emerging workforce of degreed and highly skilled technical workers who begin developing their mathematics and science skills early in their educational career,” said Rochelle Slutskin, Coordinator of Science for Anne Arundel County Public Schools.

Local winners will be announced March 7, 2013, at an awards assembly to be held from 6 to 8:30 p.m. in the auditorium at North County High School.

Projects will be available for public viewing from 11:30 am. to 12:30 p.m. on Saturday, March 2.

The Anne Arundel County Regional Science and Engineering fair is dedicated to promoting science education and recognizing and rewarding student achievement in science.
