Project Judging

Raisbeck Aviation High School is nearing the end of the year and that means our students are hard at work on their culminating projects. I’ve booked the presentation date and reserved the rooms so all we need now are the judges. Many of you have judged presentations in the past and know how important and fun it is.

For those of you who haven’t yet judged, you should know that it’s a very valuable experience for students to present and defend their work and learning. Presenting to members of the community raises the stakes for the kids and they rise to the occasion. I think you’ll find it to be rewarding and also just a lot of fun!

Two of my classes are presenting on June 1st and 2nd  – Astronomy and Flight by Design. Students in my astronomy class have analyzed data and applied physics and astrophysics concepts and mathematical analysis to derive important properties of stars, binary star systems, and galaxies. My 11th and 12th grade engineering students are presenting a capstone project where they  designed, 3-D printed, and tested the efficiency of different airfoils.  

The presentations will be held at Raisbeck Aviation High School across the street from the Museum of Flight. Here are the details:

Wed, June 1, 1045 – 1225
Astronomy project evaluation (10th-12th grade students)
4-12 judges needed (three 20min presentations per judging team)

Thu, June 2, 900 – 1040
Airfoil project evaluation (11th-12th grade engineering students)
4 to 6 judges (one 45min presentation per judging team)

You are obviously welcome to volunteer for either or both sessions as your schedules will accommodate. 

Please reply directly to me with your availability and preferences and I’ll add you to the scheduling spreadsheet and follow up with more details in a few weeks.
Thank you for volunteering your time to help our school and our students!
