Science and engineering fair has a title sponsor
Foundation has agreed to be the title sponsor for the science and
engineering fair planned at USI in March.
The Pott Foundation Tri-State Science and Engineering Fair will be
held March 6-7 for students in grades six through 12 from schools
within a 75-mile radius of Evansville.
Dr. Scott Gordon, dean of the Pott College of Science and
Engineering, said, “We are grateful to the Pott Foundation for
agreeing to be the title sponsor of the science and
engineering fair. This event will be the largest celebration
of science in the Tri-state, and it will offer an exciting
opportunity for students to display their research projects
and receive recognition for their work.”
The science and engineering fair will serve as the qualifier
for the state and international science and engineering fair
(this year in Albuquerque, New Mexico). Awards will include
six $1,500 renewable USI scholarships in the senior division,
cash awards, and plaques for winners. In addition, cash awards
will go to classrooms with the most participants at the junior
and senior divisions, and cash awards will go to the
classrooms of the winners. Other awards will be announced
later. Persons who want to offer an award or assist in
sponsorship can call Gordon at 812/465-7137.
The University of Evansville discontinued its longtime
administrative sponsorship of the fair in July but will
continue to support both the regional and state events through
scholarships and assistance in judging.
