On Friday evening, 3/11/05, eleven Chapter members served as statistics Special Awards judges in the Southeast Michigan Science Fair, held at Washtenaw Community College in Ypsilanti Township, MI.   The judging was a joint effort with the Ann Arbor Chapter of ASA, and included members from both Chapters.   We reviewed approximately 300 (high school and middle school) science projects for their use of statistics in their research and exhibit.

The panel gave 47 signed Certificates of Recognition, and 10 signed Certificates of Merit.    Among the 10 more meritorious projects, we gave 2 Awards of Excellence as determined by consensus of our panel of Statistics Judges.   Those 2 projects each received a special certificate signed by all of the Statistics Judges, and a book (“The Cartoon Guide to Statistics” for the middle school student, and “Lady Tasting Tea” for the high school student
