Public is invited to the 2014 Billings Clinic Research Center Science Expo

Billings, MT— The 26th Anniversary of the Billings Clinic Research Center Science Expo will take place on March 28 and 29, 2014 on the campus of Montana State University- Billings. This year, 361 students from 54 schools have entered 333 science and math projects for judging at the event.

This year’s Science Expo theme is Light Fantastic. Guest Scientist, Dr. Charles Kankelborg will be presenting, “What is Light,” on Friday, March 28th from 5-6 p.m. in the Petro Theater at Montana State University Billings. His presentation is open to the public. Dr. Kankelborg is an Associate Professor of Physics at Montana State University - Bozeman and is a co-investigator on the NASA IRIS satellite mission which launched in June 2013. He also leads a rocket experiment called MOSES. Both of these missions involve ultraviolet observations of the sun from space.

Judging of science projects will follow Dr. Kankelborg’s presentation. Projects are primarily judged on how well students use and understand the scientific method or the engineering design process; but projects are also judged for their creativity, craftsmanship, and artistic merit with over $20,000 in prizes to be won.

While the judging portion is not open to the public, everyone is invited to visit the science fair projects and to participate in the interactive exhibits from local science-minded organizations on Saturday, March 29th from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the Physical Education Building at MSU-B.

The awards ceremony for science project entries will start at 3 p.m. on Saturday, March 29th at the Lincoln Center Auditorium.
