Student observer experience & volunteer opportunity

The Student Observer Experience, Wednesday, May 13

The Student Observers at Intel ISEF 2015 will have the opportunity to learn about Science in Action with a panel of professionals from a wide range of science disciplines. Following the panel, observers will be able to share information about their own projects and research with their peers in a small group setting and receive a commemorative booklet from the experience. Lunch will be provided for the student observers and the adult chaperones in attendance.

We encourage all student observers to sign up for this field trip. To be eligible, student observers must meet the following criteria: 
1) Be in grades 7-12 or equivalent.
2) Sign and a Student Observer Code of Conduct & Release. Either have your Fair Director upload the signed document to their Official Party Registration, or email it to outreach@societyforscience.org
3) An adult of your official party approves your participation.

Volunteer to help at the Intel ISEF Education Outreach Program Thursday, May 14

Additionally, in a role that student observers have previously held and been of great support, SSP would like to encourage student observers to help facilitate Education Outreach activities on Thursday, May 14, 2015.  The full day will be from 8:15 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.  Student observers are asked to support the program all day or to take a 3-hour shift (8:15 a.m.–11:00 a.m. or 11:00 a.m. - 2:00 pm) that will allow them time to visit the exhibit hall as well as volunteer.
Student observers who volunteer in this capacity are encouraged to share their excitement for science and help local students understand how they, too, could participate in Intel ISEF one day.  Meeting a fellow student and hearing first-hand about the Intel ISEF experience may well be one of the most effective and exciting parts of the visiting students’ trip.

Please complete the online form to sign up by the April 27, 2015 deadline.
