Pacific Lutheran University, STEM Fair Finals March 25, 2017

We were at the STEM Fair Finals held at the Pacific Lutheran University held on March 25, 2017

Again this year a student stopped by asking many questions about the display, said to us he would change
his major to the earth sciences as it was so interesting. We set up a little before 9:00 AM and dismantled the display shortly after 3:00 PM.

The intensity of the participants with their projects is amazing but watching the parents checking that everything is setup properly and insuring that the presenters are looking their best makes you want to smile. Then as the judges ascend on the group it gets very quiet and looking apprehensive waiting their turn.

Watching the Kindergarten Children explain to the judges is an experience as they gesture with their hands and get so exuberant (excited) in trying to convince the judge, one that they really did the work on the project while showing their knowledge of the subject.
