Judges in mathematics and statistics, as well as in other areas of the natural and behavioral sciences, are still needed for the 51st International Science and Engineering Fair, which will take place in Detroit in May. Details can be obtained by visiting the fair's Web site, http://www.isef2000.org, or contacting Mike Canjar (UDM; 313-993-1209, firstname.lastname@example.org). Judging takes place on May 9-10.
The fair, being held in Detroit for the first time in over 30 years, is open to the public May 11-12 at Cobo Hall. More than $2 million in scholarships, scientific equipment, and educational trips will be awarded to some of the 1500 high school students selected to participate from the United States and dozens of foreign countries.
On a somewhat related note, the Editor would like to call readers' attention to an interesting Web site called Mathnerds, http://www.mathnerds.com, which provides answers to math questions submitted by students at all levels. It's similar to Ask Dr. Math, a part of the Math Forum, http://forum.swarthmore.edu. Volunteers are needed to join the team of answerers.
