Calling GeoMentors in the LA area:  Judges are needed for year’s Intel International Science and Engineering Fair in Los Angeles to select the best projects presented by 1800 students from 80 countries to receive awards totaling $4 million.  The time commitment for judges is a day and a fraction on May 16-17 in the Los Angeles Convention Center, during which time free parking and all meals will be provided.  ISEF itself is a week-long event for its participants, as well as thousands of others invited from all over southern California, but judging, which is the core of the Fair, occupies only the day and a fraction.

To get a sense of the fair, there's a video that captured the week of ISEF 2016 held in Phoenix in three minutes plus:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Kz9bxvvzyK0

If interested, please contact Chris Gould (Judging Chair, 2017 Intel Los Angeles, Dept. of Physics & Astronomy, Univ. of Southern California at ISEF@usc.edu
