The 2012 Massachusetts State High School Science & Engineering Fair has begun! About 350 volunteer judges received training this morning on the finer points of the job, and have made their way into MIT's Johnson Athletics Center (JAC) to meet their assigned students. Results of the judging will be tabulated this evening and winners will be announced during the awards ceremony tomorrow evening. Billy Costa, host of High School Quiz Show and well-known radio personality, will MC.
With half a million dollars in prize money and scholarships at stake, there's palpable energy in JAC today! The science fair will be open to the public tomorrow, May 5th, from 12:30-3:00. Bring the family and check out these amazing student projects!
