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. Please enjoy the photos of the fair and we hope to see you again next year!

The 2012 STSSF is fast approaching! Some projects at the STSSF will be selected by the judges for advancement to regional competition. Students advanced to Regional Level will have the opportunity to compete Sunday March 18th at the Ying TRSEF in Syracuse. Yes, that’s right, you may be able to make it a whole weekend of science! Students who wish to take advantage of this opportunity will be able to put their display in the free Ying TRSEF van (after the STSSF on Saturday) for transport to Syracuse, set-up and approval. STSSF students who have advanced to the TRSEF will need to be at Onondaga Community College in Syracuse at 11:00 a.m. on Sunday, March 18th. The TRSEF Awards Ceremony should be done by 6:00 p.m. Additional details will be provided with your Advancement Certificate presented at the STSSF. The STSSF volunteers are excited to see you and your science projects on the 17th! We are looking forward to a great day at the 10th annual STSSF!

Are you prepared for an emergency? Have you ever thought about a career in emergency medicine? This year at the 2012 STSSF, take part in a workshop where you will learn some basic first aid and have an up close look at the type of training that is needed to be a “critical care” expert. The workshop will be led by Sid Peake, who has over twenty years of experience as a New York State Critical Care EMT and is a Deputy Coordinator with the Broome County Office of Emergency Management. At the workshop, you will learn how to stay safe by being aware and avoiding dangerous situations, and how you can help others in an emergency by knowing what to do and who to call. Sid and his volunteers will also demonstrate and discuss more advanced procedures pertaining to respiration, cardiac, and trauma emergencies. We hope you will join us for this exciting and informative “emergency experience”.

The 2012 Southern Tier Scholastic Science Fair will be held on Saturday, March 17th. We realize that this is the same day as the Ying TRSEF in Syracuse and that students will not be able to compete in both fairs. We regret the conflict but remain committed to supporting local middle and high school student projects at our community fair! We look forward to a great day of science, fun and prizes and hope to see you there. Please check back on February 1st for updated forms.
