Intel International Science and Engineering Fair: Volunteer!

The Intel International Science and Engineering Fair is searching for volunteers.

The Intel International Science and Engineering Fair, a prestigious science competition for students in grades 9-12, is gearing up for the 2014 finals and is recruiting volunteers to help run the Fair or serve as translators in Los Angeles on May 13 and 14.

Opportunities are available for judging, translating, or general service, in a variety of time commitments. The greatest need for interpreters is both conversational and technical/scientific Spanish, Russian, and Mandarin, but many other languages are targeted as well. Volunteering offers an opportunity to help kids entering STEM  (scientific, technical, engineering, and math) fields, to learn more about it yourself, to soak up STEMthusiasm, learn about research projects, or simply to work towards your good deed quota.

You can learn more, get contact details, or print a volunteer information and recruitment flyer at Society for Science or watch a volunteer informational video.

Kay works with engineers, scientists, and programmers as a writer and editor, which she prefers over working with muggles. When sufficiently caffeinated, she geeks out over words, communication, biology, needlework, and recreational sports. And, of course, chocolate. Her children _may_ have been exposed to D&D at a too-young age, but they continue to play happily to this day.
