Intel International Science & Engineering Fair

Each year, AAPT and APS organize the judging team for the physics displays at the Intel International Science & Engineering Fair (ISEF). Held annually in May, the Intel ISEF brings together over 1,200 students from 40 nations to compete for scholarships, tuition grants, internships, and scientific field trips. This year ISEF will be held the week of May 8-14, 2005 at the Phoenix Civic Plaza Convention Center. We are soliciting names of 3 to 4 judges who would volunteer to spend one and half days to judge entries. If you are interested in participating, please contact Roxanne Muller at (301) 209-3311 or send an email to rmuller@aapt.org for consideration. The ISEF website is http://www.intelisef2005.org
