29th Annual Team Crane Science Fair, 11 April 2012

The American Society of Naval Engineers (ASNE) Southern  Indiana Section, in conjunction with other local groups, sponsored the annual Science Fair.  Junior high and high school students from across southern Indiana participated in the 29th Annual Team Crane Science Fair at Naval Support Activity (NSA) Crane, April 11, 2012.  More than 125 participants submitted their self-made projects for judging at the NSA Crane gymnasium for a chance to win awards and cash prizes from multiple sponsoring organizations and private donors.  Team Crane is committed to promoting this event and associated Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathmatics (STEM) programs that spur student interest in careers that will cultivate the workforce for the next generation. 

More than a dozen employee organizations worked together to assist the planning and registration for this year's fair.  The overwhelming support from many Team Crane employees, including 40 who served as onsite judges, ensure the event's continued success.

Federally Employed Women (FEW) presented awards for the three best female entrants.  The Association of Old Crows (AOC) presented two awards to projects that best represented Electronic Warfare (EW), and the Southern Indiana section of ASNE presented two awards for Best Engineering Principles.

Students were also eligible for honors from the Office of Naval Research (ONR) and the Jackson Awards which were presented to five schools in each division that were best represented at the fair.  The Jackson Awards are named in honor of James Jackson, a retired educator from Carlisle, Indiana, who has supported the science fair for the past 27 years.
