Public is invited to the 2015 Billings Clinic Science Expo

Billings, MT— The 27th Anniversary of the Billings Clinic Science Expo will take place on March 27 and 28, 2015 on the campus of Montana State University- Billings. This year, 415 students from 60 schools have entered science and engineering projects for judging at the event.

This year’s Expo theme is the science of Forensics. Guest speaker, Jamie Bray, forensic scientist with the Montana State Crime Lab, will be presenting “CSI Montana: Fact verses Fiction” on Friday, March 27 in the Petro Theater at Montana State University Billings. Her presentation is free and open to the public. Bray has analyzed over 700 criminal cases, testified more than 30 times in court as an expert witness, and regularly provides forensic training to medical and law enforcement agencies throughout the State.

Judging of science projects will follow Bray’s presentation. Projects are primarily judged on how well students use and understand the scientific method and 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 28 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the MSU-B Physical Education Building.
