The world's largest international science competition for students in grades 9–12 will be held on May 8-13, 2011, at the Los Angeles Convention Center.
Sponsored and organized by the Intel Corporation and the Society for Science & the Public, the event will convene approximately 1,600 high school students from nearly 60 countries and territories to showcase their independent research.
The youths who will participate in the competition represent the next generation of innovators, scientists and entrepreneurs who will take today's technological advances to the next level.
Interpreters, Judges and Volunteers Needed
Approximately 200 volunteer interpreters will be needed to help student teams from other countries to converse with others and to explain their science projects. The greatest demand for interpreters will be in the Spanish, Russian and Mandarin languages. Interpreters in other languages and approximately 500 general assignment volunteers also will be needed.
In addition, judges for projects in 17 scientific disciplines are encouraged to volunteer. Judges must have a Ph.D., M.D. or equivalent (D.O., Ed.D., D.D.S., D.V.M.) or a minimum of six years of related professional experience beyond receiving a B.A., B.S., or a master's degree.
