Seeking Volunteer Mentors for 2019 Spring Science Fair

At Dr. Walter Cooper Academy

The RES has been invited to help establish the first annual, Dr. Walter Cooper Academy Science Fair. The School-Based Planning Team, including parents, teachers and administrators, has requested the support of the Rochester Engineering Society in developing a Spring 2019 science fair at #10 School. The scope of this request includes…

  • ·         Teachers at Grade Levels 3 - 6 will introduce the requirements of the science fair to their classes, later this Winter.
  • ·         Students will be invited to volunteer to participate in this assignment, and they will agree to complete the required work.
  • ·         RES Volunteer Mentors will meet with small groups of students, twice a week, at the school, during their daily, 40 minute science instruction block.
  • ·         The RES Volunteer Mentors will help the Students select a “scientific phenomenon” they would like to investigate, guide them in planning their investigation, and help them design their presentation and  findings for the Fair. Homework for the Students, in support of this effort, will be a distinct possibility.
  • ·         The Dr. Walter Cooper Academy 2019 Science Fair will be scheduled, at the School, for early June 2019.
  • ·         RES Volunteer Mentors will begin helping the Students get prepared for the Fair during the week of May 6th, and then meeting twice each week with their Students, for the next six weeks. This will allow Students and Mentors 12 – 14 days to work on their investigation/presentation.

The RES is seeking Volunteer Mentors to support this Science Technology Engineering & Mathematics (STEM) activity. Unlike our RES Tutoring Team, this involves only a short-term commitment of approximately six weeks. Volunteer Mentors will be working with Students who have expressed a desire to learn more about science, technology, engineering and math. These Students are motivated!

Do you think you might consider making room in your busy lives to support our “Cooper Scholars” as they develop habits that will help them achieve new levels of learning, focused on a brighter future? Then volunteer to become an RES Mentor.

Please contact RES Director, Lee Loomis ( or (585) 738-3079 (mobile & text) for more information, and to volunteer for this important, potentially life-changing opportunity.
