SCIENCE OLYMPIAD NEEDS VOLUNTEERS! - Looking for something fun to do over Spring Break? Want to add a little something to your résumé? Volunteers are needed to help KU host the CE Regional Science Olympiad on Wednesday, March 9 (snow date: Thursday, March 10). The Science Olympiad is a competition held on campus that hosts 30 high schools and 15 middle schools from Berks, Lehigh, and Northampton Counties. Over 700 students will compete in approximately 50 events based in science disciplines such as biology, earth science, chemistry, physics, computers, and technology - and we need your help to make all that happen! You do not need a science background to be a volunteer. We need help with registrations, lobby info, food sales/delivery, set-up, scoring, event assistance and so much more. You can judge an event or help with the Appeals Board.  Club advisers - get your club involved!  Please contact our volunteer coordinators: Dr. Gregory Setliff at setliff@kutztown.edu or Dr. Daniel Aruscavage at aruscava@kutztown.edu if you are interested, and check out our website at http://www2.kutztown.edu/events/science-olympiad.htm for more information.
