It was a great day at the 2013 STSSF! Thanks to all of the students, teachers, parents, sponsors and volunteers who made the 2013 Southern Tier Scholastic Science Fair a success! It was our biggest fair ever with lots of great science and really amazing projects. (And we managed to eat 608 pieces of pizza.)
A complete list of award winners can be found here: 2013 STSSF Awards

We have some great things planned for you at the 2013 STSSF!
When you are not meeting with the judges, you can take part in our workshop entitled: “What You Know That Isn’t So: An Exploration of Discrepant Events in Science.” Are you wondering what a discrepant event is? Check out these videos for some examples:
Then, while the judges are reviewing their results (and you are enjoying some pizza), you can take part in any or all of the following activities:
- Whatever the weather! Depending on weather conditions, come launch a weather balloon or take microphotography of snowflakes or learn about microclimates around the campus. Location: Quad outside Applied Technology Building
- Back by popular demand! Waterman Conservation Education Center will have Birds of Prey for an up close and informative presentation on all things related to Raptors. Location: AT117
- Solar Astronomy: Use a filtered telescope to safely view the surface of the sun. Location: Outside between Decker and Applied Technology Buildings
We have new awards and new prizes and we look forward to seeing your science projects at the fair. Please be sure to try to get your registration in by February 18th!

Hello, Science Students! The 2013 STSSF will be held on Saturday, March 2nd at BCC. This year students will have the opportunity to participate in a workshop entitled: “What You Know That Isn’t So: An Exploration of Discrepant Events in Science.”
The workshop will be led by Dr. Tracy Curtis from the Biology Department at Broome Community College. A discrepant event is one that surprises and puzzles the observer. A discrepant event is unexpected and does not usually seem to follow the rules of science. At this workshop you will have the opportunity to use your problem-solving and critical thinking skills to discover the reasons for some discrepant events.
We have lots of other great things planned for you and, of course, you will have the chance to tell our judges about your science project! Please be sure to get your registration in by February 18th. We look forward to seeing you on March 2nd!

There were raptors! There were weather balloons! There was a lot of pizza! There was emergency medicine (but just for demonstration)! And….there were some amazing science projects! The 2012 Southern Tier Scholastic Science Fair was a fun day for all involved. Thanks again to everyone who volunteered at the fair and to all of the students and parents who attended. Thanks to our generous sponsors who make this event possible and a very special thank you to Dr. Andrea Wade for her ten years of leadership and dedication.
