Orlando, Fla. — Volunteers from the U.S. Army Research Laboratory's Human Research Directorate, Simulation and Training Technology Center, the Army Program Executive Office for Simulation, Training and Instrumentation and the Naval Air Warfare Center Training Systems Division served as judges at the Seminole County Regional Science Fair.
The fair featured more than 257 projects from local area middle and high school students. Projects were divided into categories including: Behavioral and Social Sciences (human behavior), Biochemistry, Botany (plant sciences), Chemistry, Computer Science, Earth Science, Engineering 1 (bioengineering, civil, construction, chemical, industrial, materials), Engineering 2 (electrical, computer , controls, mechanical, thermo, solar, robotics), Environmental Management (ecology, remediation), Environmental Sciences, Math, Medicine and Health, Microbiology, Physics and Astronomy and Zoology (animal science).
This year, the joint service representatives and the Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) council judged 70 projects for four special awards provided by the Air Force. Additionally, a smaller contingency from the group judged the overall project winners to represent Seminole County at the International Science Fair.
