Washington State Science and Engineering Fair
SAE Northwest is proud to pass along the following note about a great volunteer opportunity:
It is time again to start finding judges for the 57th Washington State Science and Engineering Fair to be held at Bremerton High School April 4 and 5, 2014.
- The participants range from 1st grade through high school.
- There’s an amazing variety of projects presented and the kids are great to work with.
- Some of the high school projects look like they came out of a university research lab!
- Last year they had over 500 students participating, an increase of 100 students from the year before.
- They anticipate even greater numbers this year.
- As a result they will need to add 250 more judges to the 185 they had last year.
The two following links are the front/back of the event flyer:

[PSEC] Local Volunteer Opportunities
Please consider the following three volunteer opportunities. These are brought to us by the PSEC (Puget Sound Engineering Council) organization.
A new student club at the University of Washington is looking for engineering speakers and possibly some mentoring relationships: the Society of Asian Scientists and Engineers (SASE).
They would like 1-2 speakers on these topics for sometime in either the last 2 weeks in January or the second half of April. Their schedule is flexible.
1. Electrical Engineering
2. Mechanical Engineering
3. Bio-related (Bio-Engineering, Biochemistry, etc.)
Contact: Ariel Lin
President of Society of Asian Scientists and Engineers at UW
I teach engineering technology at Roosevelt High School in North Seattle. I would like to start a new program in my school which would link some of the more advanced students in engineering classes to engineers in local industry. This would be a one to one mentor/mentee relationship which would last for one semester.

I have need of one or more speakers in both my classroom and school. The first is an event for girls next month Jan 22. We need female engineers to speak to a large group of girls about getting involved in engineering. The speaker would talk about what it is like to be an engineer and how they got to that point in their career. They would also get some small group/one on one interaction to answer questions. We are trying to get girls into engineering and need someone who is a dynamic speaker.
The second item is that I teach an Introduction to Engineering, a Principles of Engineering and a Aerospace Engineering class. I need engineers of either gender from several disciplines to come in and talk throughout the school year. I will need them to talk about how they got into engineering, what classes they took, what they do know, etc.
The last item is that I am an FRC mentor and we have several teams in the district. We need help from mechanical and electrical engineers. All engineers are welcome, but we have electrical, mechanical and pneumatic components on our big FRC bot. There are things like calculating loads on a motor that I just do not have the expertise with that an engineer can help with.
Please let me know if you can help.
