Volunteers needed to judge projects at SCI://TECH science fair Feb. 1


Volunteers are still needed to judge science projects Feb. 1 at the largest science fair in the state of Texas—the annual SCI://TECH Exposition, “Where STEM Gets Its Roots.”

Conroe ISD and Education for Tomorrow Alliance, a nonprofit organization in Montgomery County, partnered to host the 29th annual SCI://TECH Expo, which will feature science projects from more than 1,700 students from CISD and other local private schools, according to a Jan. 30 news release from the EfTA.

The science and technology expo takes place Feb. 1-2 at the Lone Star Convention and Expo Center, located at 9055 Airport Road, Conroe. Volunteers are needed to judge life and physical science categories on day one of the event, with shifts beginning at 7:45 a.m., 9:30 a.m. and 2 p.m. on Feb. 1. Judging shifts will last approximately three hours, according to the release.

On Feb. 1, seventh- and eighth-grade students will participate in the Entergy Junior High Science Fair, while ninth- through 12th-grade students will participate in the Chevron Philips Chemical Senior High Science Fair.  Additionally, families are invited to attend day two of the expo between 10 a.m.-4 p.m., which will include free science, technology, engineering and math activities throughout.

According to the release, a background in science is not needed, as volunteers will receive on-site training. Volunteers must register online at www.efta-us.org/volunteer. For more information on the opportunity, interested individuals can contact Monica Bomkamp Enia at office@efta-us.org or 936-273-7087.
