The 12th annual Alfred State College Regional Science and Technology Fair will be held Friday, March 25, 2011, from 10 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. in the Orvis Activities Center gymnasium on the Alfred campus.
Science and Technology Fair entries from regional junior and senior high school students will be judged in the following categories: agriculture, biology, chemistry, physics, astronomy, computers, earth sciences, engineering, environmental science, forensic science, health, and medicine. Entries will be divided into junior (grades 7-9), senior (10-12), and novice (4-6) categories.
Each participant will receive a certificate of participation, and individual ribbons will be presented to first, second, and third prize winners in all divisions as well as to the grand prize winner. School trophies will be awarded to those schools which, in the opinion of the judges, have made the best overall contribution(s) to the Fair in the junior and senior divisions and to the school having the grand prize exhibit in the Fair. First, second, and third prizes will be awarded in both upper divisions; a grand prize will also be awarded.
Alstom Transportation, Hornell, is sponsoring this year’s Science Fair at Alfred State. Additional funding is provided by ACES (Auxiliary Campus Enterprises and Services—the campus dining, vending, and transportation provider) and Alfred State Student Senate.
