Calling scientists, engineers, hackers and tinkerers, to engineer a way to reverse climate change. Meetups are to create an open source design and hardware device to reverse climate change at scale. Meetup: Wed 3/22@6:30-8:30@TechShop SF. Forward to friends, our planet thanks you. Design candidates will be presented at the Bay Area Maker Faire exhibit in May.
Volunteer Opportunity! Enhance STEM Education! STEM logo Teaching Opportunities for Partners in Science (TOPS) of the Santa Clara Valley is looking for scientists and engineers who are willing to partner with science teachers to enhance the science curriculums of grades K-8 in the Santa Clara Valley. It's a program that promotes in-depth relationships of a volunteer with a science teacher and his/her class on a weekly basis to amplify labs and class sessions with the scientists' real-world experience.
Here's a chance to make a real difference to students in aiming their education at a career in science or engineering. To find out more, go to www.topsofscv.org
Science Fair Judges Needed
Science Fair season is coming up. For over 25 years, the IEEE has provided both prizes and judges for local fairs and we need your help once again. These fairs provide an opportunity for students from middle schools and high schools to show their projects and hear comments from professionals like you. Projects range from the simple to the sophisticated, but behind every project is a student who is anxious to find out what you think about it. As a judge you will interact with students and help them understand what they did right and how they could do better next time.

If you are interested in helping out at one of these fairs, or sponsoring a prize, please call Charlie Neuhauser at (408) 245-0085 (W) or E-mail him at Cneuhauser@Earthlink.net. No previous experience or specialized knowledge is necessary only patience and common sense. You can find out more about the fairs at the following sites:

Santa Clara: http://www.science-fair.org , on Thursday, March 23, from 10 am to 4 pm

SIA Logo School Science Presenters Wanted for AVS Science in Action Volunteer to support science education in local schools! Are you a Bay Area professional with a science or engineering background? You can give interactive science presentations based on pressure, gas behavior, and vacuum technology to elementary, middle, and high school students. This is your chance to have a little fun, and to amaze and inspire a new generation of students using equipment that the schools don't have.
If you're willing to make two or more school visits per school year (a few hours each), we will train you and provide the organization, equipment, and supplies. Contact us at ncccavs_education@avs.org or brynsvold@ieee.org!
