The Spirit of Innovation Awards

The following is a message from Clementine L. Ntshaykolo of the Conrad Foundation:

The Spirit of Innovation Awards program challenges teams of high school students to create innovative products using science, technology, and entrepreneurship. Last year’s Spirit of Innovation Awards exceeded our wildest dreams. Teams came from all over the United States and we even had a team from China. I want to extend to you a personal invitation to participate in the 2009/2010 Spirit of Innovation Awards challenges. Please see www.conradawards.org for a full description of this year’s challenge categories. Teacher’s serving as a team’s coach will also receive awards and recognition for themselves and their schools.

New and exciting resources are also available to assist you and the students:

College Credit for your Research Project

Juniors and Seniors have the opportunity to earn 4 college credits from Portland State University for meeting specific benchmarks with their research projects. The instructor of this HS Natural Science Inquiry course is Kate Norton.  Look at the accompanying documents for more information.  

SSP Fellows Program

Society for Science & the Public (SSP), with generous support from Intel, is pleased to announce the 2nd year of its Fellows Program. The goal of the program is to enable Fellows to guide students in producing project-based research of the highest quality, such as is submitted to SSP’s premiere science competition, the Intel Science Talent Search.

The SSP Fellows Program will attract the most creative and motivated high school science and math teachers in the country. The SSP Fellows Program provides funds and training to selected U.S. science and math teachers who serve under-resourced students, to enable interested and motivated students to perform high-quality independent scientific research.

Through a competitive selection process, the Program will provide teachers the financial and training resources necessary to support and inspire the success of their most enthusiastic science and math students. Fellows may serve for up to four years.

More information can be found at http://www.societyforscience.org/outreach.

Team Oregon Meets Conan O'Brien

One of the highlights of the 2009 Intel ISEF was a visit by Conan O'Brien. He visited the exhibit hall during setup day and interviewed lots of people. They've finally posted some videos from those interviews and some Beaverton-Hillsboro Science Expo winners were featured prominently. Who knew we had comic geniuses as well as scientific ones? Check out the "Intel Science Fair, part 1" and "Intel Science Fair, part 2" videos here: http://www.tonightshowwithconanobrien.com/intel/.
