INTERA Scientists Serve as Judges in Regional Science Festival
INTERA’s Beronica Lee-Brand and Shannon George recently volunteered as judges in the Junior/Senior Division of the 2018 Austin Energy Regional Science Festival—a competition for 3rd through 12th grade students from 23 school districts and 12 counties in Texas. With over 3,500 students and families in attendance, it is among the largest of the 13 regional science fairs held in Texas. The festival offers a public viewing of the science projects, educational booths, and scientific demonstrations. Beronica and Shannon stated that, “it’s a great way to support the community, and we’re just glad we could be part of it.” Both said they were impressed with the quality and innovativeness of the science projects, making their judging responsibilities even more of a challenge.
