ESD The Engineering Society to Launch Innovative Science & Technology Competition for Michigan Students

Apr 05, 2001, 01:00 ET from ESD The Engineering Society

    SOUTHFIELD, Mich., April 5 /PRNewswire/ -- The Internet Science &
 Technology Fair (ISTF) is a new kind of science fair perfectly suited for the
 "internet era."
     ESD The Engineering Society will showcase this new and exciting K-12
 program at the New Directions in Math & Science Educational Conference.  The
 ISTF will be offered as a pilot program during the 2001-2002 school year.
 Admission to this pilot program is limited and registration priority will be
 given to teachers who attend the conference, to be held Monday, April 30,
 2001, 7:30 a.m. - 2 p.m., at the University of Detroit Mercy, 4001 West
 McNichols Road, Detroit, Michigan.
     The Internet Science & Technology Fair is for students in grades 3-12.
 The competition employs a team-based approach using computers as the primary
 resource tool.  The students, teacher and a practicing engineer apply their
 knowledge to create solutions to real world problems, using a technical
 application from one of the National Critical Technology Categories.  These
 categories include energy environmental quality, information communications,
 living systems, manufacturing materials and transportation.
     The concept behind ISTF is to heighten the students' interest in pursuing
 technical careers, as well as increasing their awareness of the impact of
 science and technology on their lives, the world and the economy.  Sponsorship
 opportunities are available.  For more information, contact Lynne Nagy at
 248-355-2910 or lnagy@esd.org .
 
     Founded in 1895, as the Association of Graduate Engineers of the
 University of Michigan, ESD has evolved into the nation's largest multi-
 disciplinary engineering & scientific society of its kind.  With more than
 6,000 members throughout the Great Lakes Region, ESD unites engineers,
 scientists, architects and those in related technical fields.
     The Society's programs and services are dedicated to the enhancement of
 professional development, the advancement of technology and the promotion of
 the engineering and scientific professions, thereby enabling positive
 contributions to society.  For membership information or program registration
