For the first time, I helped one of my students progress from the local science fair to enter the MARSEF: Mid-America Regional Science and Engineering Fair. Dorito spent two days this week refining his reports and presentation, with a little help from me and Mr. Sharp at Hilllyard Technical Center. The competition lasted all afternoon, which meant he gave his talk to five of the circulating judges. He was tired but very glad in the end! He won the US Navy Science Award for his Engineering Project (building and calibrating an electronic multimeter). It came with a medal, certificate, and $50 gift card.
