On Thurs I'll be a judging a science fair at a very prestigious Christian high school
When I was made aware of the need for judge I thought it was a local public school by almost the exact same name. I figured it was supposed to be an 'e' instead of a 'u' in the name so I volunteered. I just got an email from the principal about the details of the fair and discovered it is in fact a different school.

This is their welcoming statement from the website.
Quote:seeks to provide students with the opportunity for college-preparatory education set in the framework of Christian instruction and example. To this end, the school offers boys and girls rigorous academic instruction, challenging athletic and recreational activities and creative expression in the fine arts. Each of these opportunities is ultimately grounded in a desire to educate the heart.

By “education of the heart” we mean addressing issues from a Christian perspective and allowing our students the opportunity to begin to understand themselves and the world around them from a Christian world view. Some of this education of the heart is formal (Chapel, Bible classes and studies, counseling), while the rest happens as the faculty and the students interact in the normal flow of school activity. This, then, is a truly holistic view of education--a desire to educate the whole child: academically, physically, socially, and spiritually. The key to what we are doing is the faculty, who serve as role models in each of these areas as men and women mature in their professional growth and Christian faith.

I'm still going to judge it but it came as a bit of a shock when I realized I was mistaken. An atheist judging a science fair at a nationally recognized Christian academy. They are going to outline the judging criteria when we arrive at the school on Thursday afternoon. I'll probably be focusing on 2 things mostly though. How original is the experiment and how closely was the scientific method followed.

Dis gun be good
