My son participated in the Lehigh Valley Science & Engineering Research Fair. It was held March 14-15, 2014 at Lehigh University-Rauch Field House. He came in First Place and was awarded $100.00! He will now compete at the regional competition, 2014 Delaware Valley Science Fairs held at the Greater Philadelphia Expo Center in Oaks PA. The winners from this competition will go on to the Nationals. So proud of his accomplishments.
The mission of the Lehigh Valley Science and Engineering Research Fair is to increase awareness in the areas of mathematics, science, technology, and engineering, while motivating students in grades sixth through 12th to pursue careers in these field.
The fair is facilitated by its proud sponsors, Lehigh University and Insaco, Inc., teachers, and parents. Teachers volunteer their personal time to prepare their students for this special day; this is above and beyond the call of duty and is greatly appreciated.
The judges are also volunteers, who spend their own time interviewing these bright and talented young people. Faculty and staff also contribute their time to provide hands-on learning experiences for these young people.
