Science and engineering fair
Student scientists and engineers are showcasing their work at the annual Tri-Valley Science and Engineering Fair, sponsored by Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, starting Tuesday and ending today at the Robert Livermore Community Center.
Participants include 413 students from grades 7-12 attending schools in Danville, Dublin, Livermore, Pleasanton, San Ramon and Sunol. The 300 projects, some by teams, were judged by local scientists and engineers, and winners from the senior division will go on to the Intel ISEF in May. Junior Division winners compete at the California State Science Fair.
The Livermore Amador Valley Transit Authority is recruiting volunteers for two-year terms on the Wheels Accessible Advisory Committee (WAAC) and alternates to represent the cities of Livermore, Dublin and Pleasanton and social/human services agencies. LAVTA operates WHEELS fixed route public transit and Dial-A-Ride paratransit services.
Committee members are expected to provide a forum and advise WHEELS staff on accessibility issues for senior and disabled residents on fixed route buses and Dial-A-Ride. The committee meets six times per year for approximately 90 minutes.
Candidates must be able to solicit and disseminate information effectively to their constituents, be able to meet during regular business hours (usually 3:30-5 p.m.), and be able to analyze complex issues and reports to make recommendations to the LAVTA Board of Directors. Candidates must currently use WHEELS fixed route buses or Dial-A-Ride or represent those who do but do not have to be disabled or over 65.
To apply, call 455-7555 or visit www.wheelsbus.com. Applications are due April 22.
