December 19, 2011 · Updated 9:55 AM
Bellevue College will hold a science and engineering fair March 12 that is expected to attract 80 of the region's most inventive high school students.
The 9th to 12th grade student participants from public, home and private schools, working alone or in teams of two, will conduct independent research in one of 17 science, math and engineering categories. Projects will be evaluated for creativity, depth of content, thoroughness and clarity, and other criteria by local science and engineering professionals.
The student with the highest overall score will win an all-expenses-paid trip to represent the Central Puget Sound Region at the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair (ISEF) in Los Angeles on May 8-13.
Students who wish to take part can register online at http://scidiv.bellevuecollege.edu/sami/scifair/. Registrations are being accepted through March 2.
The public can view the projects and submit their votes for the People's Choice Award from noon to 1 p.m. March 12 in Bellevue College's C Building (next to the fountain on the main concourse).
Winners will be announced during an awards ceremony at 2 p.m. Up to 50 additional category awards and special prizes will also be awarded during the ceremony.
