Snow Date for Fair will be used!

The Blizzard of 2016 is forcing us to postpone the science fair to the scheduled snow dates of Feb 12 & 13.  Have talked with Jason and others to make this determination.  Schools are likely to be closed Monday and Tuesday and on delays after that.  This precludes our getting together to finalize all our arrangements. Also, the space camp students are stranded in Alabama.

Hope you all got through the storm in good shape.  Things are fine at our house.  Relieved to not lose power.  We’ll be in touch for our next meeting.  I would expect that it will be the Tuesday before the fair.


New Award

My colleague Dr. Pam Mertz, a biochemist, has made arrangements with the American Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology to sponsor an award (or more) at this year’s science fair.  The prize(s) may be awarded in biochemistry, microbiology or biochemistry.  They will consist of a certificate and a monetary award.  I’ll get details so so we can include it in the booklet.
