2017 Central New York Science and Engineering Fair (CNYSEF) – Request For Volunteers, 26 March 2017

Volunteers, judges and mentors are needed for the Central New York Science and Engineering Fair (CNYSEF) sponsored by the Museum of Science and Technology (MOST) on Sunday, March 26, 2017 at the SRC Arena on the Onondaga Community College campus. This year, students from ten counties will compete in two divisions, the junior fair for 4th-8th graders and the senior fair for 9th-12th graders. Judges don’t need to be experts in science to listen as the students demonstrate how much they have learned and accomplished. A continental breakfast, lunch and training will be provided for the judges and volunteers. Those interested in volunteering can apply online here. Reply to Earl Turner eturner@most.org if you have any questions.

The encouragement and interest shown by volunteers and judges is an essential part of the student’s science fair experience. Help inspire our future generation of scientists and engineers!

TACNY Junior Cafe Scientifique: Two Talks From Intel International Science & Engineering Fair Finalists

Saturday – December 17, 9:30-11:00am

Milton J Rubenstein Museum of Science & Technology – Syracuse, NY

Lectures:

Talk 1:TESLA: Glimpse Of Your Future Car”
Talk 2: “Learn How To Code And Use Your Skills To Develop A Successful Project And Business”

Please RSVP to jrcafe@tacny.org.

Speakers:

Talk 1 – Andrew Park, High School Senior, Manlius Pebble Hill
Talk 2 – Alexander Wulff, High School Senior, Skaneateles High School

Talk Overviews:

Talk 1 – After the recent reveal of TESLA’s Model 3, we got a quick glance to the future of the automobile industry. With more than 400,000 pre-orders, TESLA’s Model 3 shows that the world is finally realizing that electric cars are simply “better” than gasoline cars. Explore the fascinating nature of electric cars and why you want it as your first car!

Talk 2 – Almost everything in today’s world relies upon a few hundred to millions of lines of code in one of hundreds of different programming languages; you can start programming with just a web browser! Learn how Alex used programming to start a successful website and mobile application development business, and to create award-winning electronics projects, and how you can do the same!

Biographies:

Andrew Park is part of National Honor Society, Varsity Soccer, Varsity Golf, Math League, and Science Olympiad, and plays 1st Clarinet for Wind Ensemble. Outside of school, Andrew is a student editor for the Korea Daily Newspaper. Andrew received the Intel ISEF (Intel International Science and Engineering Fair) Finalist Award, the IEEE Award, and Highest Honors at the Central New York Science and Engineering Fair (CNYSEF). Andrew also created a history documentary, and was selected as a National History Day Finalist after receiving Second Place at New York State History Day and First Place at Central New York History Day. Andrew’s favorite hobbies are watching Parks and Recreation and riding his bicycle.

Alex Wulff’s passions lie in electronics and software. While recovering from a soccer injury, Alex began to experiment with the creation of electronics on the Arduino platform. Since then, Alex’ output ranges from interactive door locks to wearable assistive devices for the blind, which won the Intel ISEF Finalist Award at the CNYSEF, and a fourth place award at the Intel ISEF in 2015. In 2016, Alex created smart embedded cast-monitoring devices that can predict the onset of complications in orthopedic casts and splints, which again won him the grand prize at the CNYSEF and a fourth place award at ISEF. Alex’s business, Conifer Apps, owns, operates, and maintains multiple websites as well as 13 mobile apps on the iOS App Store.

Starting this year, students from eleven counties will compete in two divisions, the junior fair for 4th-8th graders and the senior fair for 9th-12th graders. Judges don’t need to be experts in science to listen as the students demonstrate how much they have learned and accomplished. A continental breakfast, lunch and training will be provided for the judges and volunteers.

Those interested in serving as judges or volunteers can apply online here. If you have registered with the MOST online in the past, you do not have to register again. Send an e-mail to CNYSEF@most.org with your name, contact information, judging choice (junior judge, senior judge, special awards judge) or volunteer choice and affiliation. For more information, contact the CNYSEF Director at CNYSEF@most.org, or call (315) 425-9068 x2163.

2016feb19_mapCNYSEFcountiesLOGOThe 2016 Central New York Science & Engineering Fair will be held Sunday, March 20, at SRC Arena on the Onondaga Community College campus. The CNYSEF accepts science fair projects from students in grades four through 12 at public and private schools and homeschooled students in Broome, Cayuga, Chenango, Cortland, Jefferson, Madison, Onondaga, Oswego, St. Lawrence, Tioga, and Tompkins counties.

If you are coming from one of the outlying counties, you might want to arrive Saturday and spend the night in a Syracuse-area hotel. Registration begins at 8 a.m. Sunday and all participants must be in place when judging starts at 9 a.m. The closest hotels to the college are located in or near downtown Syracuse, including the Jefferson Clinton Hotel, Courtyard Marriott, Crown Plaza Syracuse, and Genesee Grande Hotel.

The last event’s projects showed the brilliance and ingenuity of some of Central New York’s future scientist and engineers, and we hope the 2016 event will provide more exciting projects. Students interested in participating in the CNYSEF are not required to have had previous science fair experience with CNYSEF or any other science fairs.

All the information you need to register your science fair project can be found on this site, including links to ideas for projects. Use the links at the top of this page to find information on the science fair, submitting your project, judging, or volunteering.

If you have any questions, please email CNYSEF Director Peter Plumley or call 315.425.9068 x 2163.
