Regional and State STEM Fair Judges Needed!

Are you an ACS member who is interested in judging at a K-12 Regional STEM Fair? All of our counties are recruiting judges at this time. There is also an opportunity to judge at the state level. Please contact Prof. Susan Del Valle if you would like more information about the STEM Fair closest to you.

Thank you to our members who volunteered at the Pinellas County Science Fair.  Pictured from left to right are Chair Crystal Saut, Treasurer Russell Odland, Senior Chemists Group member Francia Verceluz-Michna, and and Alternate Councilor Sid White. It was a fun day, and the students had a lot of original and very innovative projects.
