Local science fair at Bruce Museum Seaside Center set for Aug. 2

Six Greenwich high school students will present their science projects at the Bruce Museum Seaside Center at Greenwich Point Park on Sunday, Aug. 2, from 1:30 to 4 p.m. The public is invited to meet the students and learn about their research. Young Greenwich scientists have excelled at state and national science competitions in the past few years, and the Bruce Museum’s Seaside Center Science Fair provides an opportunity for the local community to show support for their efforts, see first-hand the innovative work currently being done, and provide inspiration for the next generation of scientists.

Judges for Phenomenon: Innovation Science Fair, a small-scale science fair, include former Greenwich High science research teacher Ray Hamilton; Dr. Jang Kim, Assistant Research Professor, University of Connecticut; and Dr. Donald B. Hoffman Associate Professor at John Jay College of Criminal Justice and Laboratory Director at CT Clinical Services in New Haven, Connecticut. The top two projects, based on scientific achievement as well as presentation, and a people’s choice selection will receive prize awards at 3:15 p.m. Visitors are encouraged to vote for their favorite work for the People’s Choice Award. Topics range from drug delivery methods to work on biofuel, tumors, and malaria.

Greenwich High School teacher Andy Bramante will be available to share his insights into the strengths of the science research program at the local high school.

Tim Walsh, the Manager of Citizen Science at the Bruce Museum, will be on hand to talk about the Museum’s new Citizen Science initiatives collecting data on cats, turtles and ants. The Museum’s Citizen Science initiatives are currently seeking volunteers of all ages. No experience required.

Phenomenon: Innovation Science Fair is part of the Fred Elser First Sunday Science at the Seaside Center series that take place at the Foren Family Environmental Center at Greenwich Point Park. The program is free, but entry to the Park requires a parking pass and beach pass. For pass information, see the Town of Greenwich website.
