Two Horrocks Employees Judged a Science Fair and it was Really Cool

IMG_1113

The STEM Fair was held at Dixon Middle School and included students ranging from elementary to high school.

It is well known that Horrocks’ work is focused on community — every task we take on is oriented around a community’s growth and sustainability. But sometimes Horrocks takes our community-focus outside of the office.
Our employees participate in their communities in many ways, from being part of non-profit boards to assisting with local food and blood drives.

This month, two of our employees, Jacob Nelson and Shawn Conlin, served as judges for a district wide STEM fair — an academic event involving students from an elementary to a secondary level.

Jacob Nelson judged five participants. As a judge, he was given an iPad to enter all of his scores.

These brilliant young minds had engaged in research and study on topics ranging from chemistry in sourdough bread to creating a laser ruler.

“I was very impressed that 11-12 year old kids knew so much about bacteria, psychology and circuits,” Jacob said about the experience. “It’s not hard to do, but I really think the kid with the laser ruler was smarter than me, and he was 12.”

Shawn and Jacob walked around the event rooms to find the projects they were assigned to judge. The children animatedly explained their findings and conveyed the importance of their work with the passion of true scientists. Shawn even got to geek out with a student over their app that they had created to deal with texting and driving — very cool!

Jacob said that he felt inspired by the enthusiasm and passion all of the kids showed in their work. “I think I have gotten older and forgotten…there is still so much to learn and so much yet to be discovered.”

We love every opportunity to serve our communities, and feel truly inspired by the passion of the people we encounter.

Thanks to the Provo City School District for this great experience!
