The 55th Annual Bay Area Science and Engineering Fair (BASEF) is approaching! We once again extend our invitation to individuals interested in supporting BASEF by volunteering as a Science Fair judge.
BASEF is the Regional Science Fair for all students in Grades 7 to 12 from Hamilton, Halton, Haldimand, Norfolk, Brant, and Six Nations. BASEF is affiliated with national and international science fair organizations, and sends many winning students on to the Canada-Wide Science Fair and the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair. This year's BASEF will again provide an opportunity for local youth to participate in an exceptional experience, and give students the chance to showcase their hard work on science, technology, engineering, and math related projects.
Judging Day for BASEF 2015 sponsored by ArcelorMittal Dofasco will be on Thursday, March 26th, at Mohawk College, Fennell Avenue in Hamilton, from 8:30am to 4:30pm.
The continued success of this event depends on the support of judges who will volunteer their time, effort and expertise. To provide the kind of first class judging experience these students deserve, we need more than 150 judges!
We welcome volunteer judges from all backgrounds - education, engineering, health care, science, business, and more. Post-secondary students who are available for judging day are also welcome. The only pre-requisite to participating as a judge is an enthusiasm for listening to youth explain and demonstrate their projects and innovations.
We have two tentative judge training dates available, and encourage first time judges to take part. (Judge training is mandatory for post-secondary students that have not judged before):
- Tuesday March 10th, at ArcelorMittal Dofasco on Burlington Street, 7:00pm - 9:00pm
- Wednesday, March 18th, at McMaster University, (Evening, room & time TBA)
Registration for Judges is now open and available online on our web site:
There is also information on judging available on our website at: www.basef.ca/judging
We'd be pleased to answer any questions you may have. Thanks in advance for any assistance you can provide in helping with this valuable and enjoyable community opportunity!
