IEEE Houston Section SEFH Place Awards Judges Junior Division (from Left to Right) – Vincent Palughi, Roy Chan, and Ernest Njouondo.
The 61st annual Science Engineering Fair of Houston (SEFH) was held Saturday February 15th, 2020, in the George R Brown Convention Center. This year’s SEFH represented 150 Texas middle and high schools, had 815 science projects submitted, and had over 1000 students participate! The Houston Section of IEEE came out in force to volunteer as place judges in the Electrical, Mechanical, and Civil categories. Place judges work in teams to determine which projects get advanced to the next rounds of the competition.
SEFH is a fantastic STEM opportunity for Houston area students. Winners of SEFH are eligible to advance to State and other Science fair competitions. One of the goals of SEFH is to encourage students to pursue a scientific or engineering profession. Many thanks to the SEFH, the University of Houston, the local sponsors, and all the volunteers from Houston’s many professional societies who made this possible. Pictured above are only a few of the IEEE Houston section volunteers present, during the event. If interested in volunteering for next year’s SEFH as a judge or other position, it is possible to get on the list, by filling an online form here.
IEEE Houston Section continues to support SEFH, it was a fun and rewarding volunteer experience.
