Young scientists receive awards


At the final event of the Hamilton Branch for the 2006-07 year, five project winners from the local Bay Area Science and Engineering Fair were on hand on May 8 to show their displays and answer questions from members in attendance.

The Hamilton Branch has been an active sponsor of BASEF for over 15 years and provides three prizes for projects in the materials science category. The other two winners were recipients of Nelson Steel Awards (Nelson is a corporate sponsor of the branch, and a Nelson parent company employee sits on the branch executive). Each student was treated to three free dinner tickets to invite their parents to join them.

“We are so proud of these dedicated, young winners who have high aptitudes and boundless enthusiasm for science and engineering,” said branch executive Shannon Clark. “By demonstrating their desire for knowledge and their passion for science, these students are an inspiration to our members. The CIM Hamilton Branch is proud to support these young scientists in their efforts to learn, discover, and make our world better.”
