A huge shout out to all the Masters and PhD and Med students who helped at the regional science fair hosted by Concordia! As head judge, I want to say that the support from grad students from both universities was phenomenal. There were 140 judges judging 130 projects, and a large portion of the judges were grad student volunteers. Knowing how hectic things get while in grad school, it was amazing to see the number of volunteers who generously donated their time. Additionally, many faculty members were at the fair. The future scientists, engineers, doctors, computer code writers and entrepreneurs worked hard on their projects and learned much from their judges. The experience was both rewarding and inspiring for the participants. If you judged and are interested in seeing the final project results, go to http://sciencetech.ca/events/montreal-regional-science-technology-fair/
Grad students – a million thanks!!!
