Falls Church City Public Schools Seeks STEAM Volunteers

Falls Church City is in need of volunteers who can help with two great projects at Mary Ellen Henderson Middle School in Falls Church.

1. Science Fair Judges for 7th & 8th grade Science Fair projects. Thursday, January 21. The judging process will involve viewing student projects, interviewing students about their work, and evaluating the projects according to a rubric.  Judges should plan to arrive at MEH around 11:30 for lunch and an informational session about the judging process.  The judging will begin around 12:30 and will run until about 3:00.  Register to be Science Fair Judge.

2. Meet with & mentor students on their Exploravision Science Contest  entries. Students are imagining ground-breaking science and technology. They are thinking outside the box as they develop proposals to describe and show their creative ideas. They need mentors to meet with them during the first two weeks of January to talk about the specifics of the proposals. If you've got any expertise at all in any of these areas, please think about helping out. We need dentists, doctors, engineers, fingerprint experts and more! Available dates are 1/4, 1/6, 1/12, 1/14 , 1/19, 1/21, and 1/25 from 11:30 a.m. - 1:00 p.m.
Check out the Student Exploravision Proposals  and contact Marybeth if you are interested.

Please share this message with your colleagues, family and friends. The more volunteers we have for this event, the better!!
