What truly makes this event so special is all of our mentor volunteers. Every volunteer brought a unique perspective to the table, coming from a range of backgrounds within the environmental science field. Representatives from Konrad Technologies, VMX International, US Ecology, and Marine Pollution Control, as well as students from Wayne State University amongst other members of the scientific community were able to chat with students about ideas and methods of creating their projects. Students were able to speak freely and thoughtfully with everyone, engaging in a manner that highlighted their excitement within the world of science, and helping us further our goal of getting students interested in the field.
Every student received a “swag bag” filled with items to help set them up for success in constructing their project boards such as glue sticks and writing instruments, as well as a 2019 Science Fair Success resource folder of information. Thanks to our sponsors and volunteers for making this event as wildly successful as the last!!
