A dedicated group of volunteers from Millennium Pharmaceuticals descended upon MIT on Friday, May 3 to judge the best-of-the-best science and engineering projects (including that of 2013 Grand Prize Winner, Nicholas Cyganski, left) on exhibit at the 64th annual State High School Science & Engineering Fair.
The Millennium contingency made up part of a judge pool more than 300 strong — career professionals in engineering, math, and the sciences who took all or part of a sunny Friday off to help motivate and inspire the state’s up-and-coming scientists.
“I always find this to be a very rewarding experience both for me and, I can tell, for the students who are participating,” said David Sedlock, Millennium’s Sr. Director of Research Systems and a seven-year volunteer judge. “I do this because I enjoy giving back to the community.”
MSSEF is grateful for the involvement of companies like Millennium and individuals from across Massachusetts who take the time to encourage and support these amazing students!
