On April 13, the CIM Hamilton Branch held the final evening of their 2005-2006 program. Five winners of the local Bay Area Science and Engineering Fair were on hand to display their projects and answer questions from those in attendance. The branch has been an active sponsor of BASEF for over 15 years and provides three prizes for projects in the Materials Science category.
The young winners present included the three recipients of the Hamilton Branch award, and two winners of the Nelson Steel awards. Students and their parents were treated to dinner and a chance to meet people from the area and learn about future career opportunities.
“These bright young winners are extremely dedicated and have demonstrated commitment and high aptitude for science and engineering,” said branch director Shannon Clark. “Their enthusiasm for materials science is contagious. Our members were very impressed and our branch is extremely proud to be able to support the hope of the future.”
