Lewiston, MN February 28, 2015 – PlastiCert, a 34 year veteran of innovative and quality plastic injection molding design and manufacturing services, helped to steer young scientists and engineers through his volunteering at the regional science fair.
Craig W. Porter, PlastiCert’s President and Owner volunteered to judge projects at the 62nd Annual Southeastern Minnesota Western Wisconsin Regional Science and Engineering Fair.
Held at Winona State University, the Science & Engineering Fair was an opportunity for over 225 budding scientists and engineers to display their research, experiments and inventions that they had been working on for months and some cases years. Categories included Behavioral and Social Sciences, Biochemistry, Botany & Agriculture, Engineering, Computer Science & Mathematics, Environmental, Chemistry, Biology, Medicine, Physics, and Biochemistry.
“I was assigned to interview students working on Engineering and Physics projects,” remarked Porter. “There were some very bright young people that carried themselves very well for teens. I have seen many adults not present as well as they did. I was very impressed with their knowledge and communication skills.” Projects Porter graded and assessed included; Acetone Corrosion of Vehicle Fuel Systems, Maximization of Lift in Airfoil Design, Acoustic Localization of Intruders in Large Indoor Spaces along with numerous other projects including solar and composites themes.
PlastiCert encourages all its co-workers to find something they are passionate about and accommodates their getting involved. PlastiCert also has baseball and basketball coaches as well as volunteers at other youth activities and accommodates their scheduling needs to fulfill those volunteer responsibilities.
