Judging Projects at Greater East Alabama Regional Science & Engineering Fair (GEARSEF).

I judged the Engineering, Computer Science and Mathematics Category at the Greater East Alabama Regional Science & Engineering Fair (GEARSEF) hosted by Auburn University. For someone from India growing up in a academic performance result – oriented education system, seeing so many students working on research projects and also presenting them was really astonishing. This took me down the memory lane to my school days where I stayed up at night after school and at home even during weekends perfecting my project! I remember doing a natural pH level indicator, mag-lev trains, a herbarium for display and a few more. I think doing these projects in school gave me some very valuable experience and also imparted interest in me to learn in-depth about science and engineering.

In conclusion, I had a fun day hanging out with school kids and talking about science. Cheers!
