Judging the Weber School District Science Fair

About a week ago, six of our Lifetime employees (mostly Engineers and Information Technicians) volunteered to help judge the Weber School District Science Fair. The two-day fair took place at Weber State University with more than 700 students ranging from sixth to twelfth grade. Judges reviewed the exhibits and interviewed students on their use of scientific thought, methods, visual appearance and creativity.Categories included: Behavioral Studies, Botany, Chemistry, Earth & Space, Energy & Transportation, Engineering & Computer Science, Environmental, Medicine & Health, Microbiology, Physics & Math and Zoology. The fair brought in an average of 200 to 300 people which included parents, college students and the general public. Each of the judges had fun learning about the different subjects from how safe your drinking water is to testing food in space.

Lifetime Products is always finding ways to give back to the community; whether it’s giving time to clean-up a cemetery or donating canned food for a food drive. What a great experience for not only the students but the judges as well!

It was great to be at Weber State assisting in the science fair, especially as Weber is where I received my Mechanical Engineering degree.  I did not end up judging engineering as they had enough judges for that discipline, but as I also have a degree in Biology, I was able to fill in and judge Microbiology.  

It was very interesting seeing the different projects the students presented, and there seemed to be a direct correlation between the amount of effort they invested and the quality of their project.  It was a learning experience for the students as we were able to point out places where they could improve both their experiments and their displays and it was exciting to see teenage minds interested in and learning from science.  Certainly my experience at Lifetime creating presentations gave me a better idea of what is required to present information in an understandable way.

Pilots, NASCAR, and Tailgating?
So, my hubby Mike did something pretty cool last weekend. I think Ive mentioned before that he is an F-16 pilot in the Air Force. Right now he is stationed at Randolph Air Force Base in San Antonio, Texas as an Instructor Pilot for the T-38 jet. Anywaylast weekend he (and some other guys from the squadron) did the flyby for the Nationwide NASCAR Series Race up in Dallas. Thanks to the wonders of technology, I was able to pause live TV and snap this photo of his flyby as shown on ESPN.:) After doing the flyby, Mike and the other pilots were escorted into pit row to watch the race. Mike said it was a pretty cool experience being right down by the action. They met Jack Roush, owner of several NASCAR teams and fellow aviation fan, and they stood within arms reach of Kyle Busch during his celebration in victory lane. However, wha...
iPhone Cases, Basketball Hoops, and Video Reviews
My husband and I made the big leap a about a month ago. We bought iPhones. I have to say, as reserved as I was about making a jump to such a trendy gadget of which I thought I wouldnt really need, I LOVE it! It is soooo user friendly and the voice control feature is astonishing. It is so cool to do a Google search just by talking to your phone, then simply tap the phone number Google pulls up to call the place you were trying to find... or tap the Google map to get GPS directions! Amazing. But, of course, we couldnt just simply purchase iPhones and be done. Oh, no. Naturally, we had to find snazzy cases, too. After running around to more than five different stores, I narrowed my choice down to the Speck Candy Shell and the iFrogz Luxe. I loved the fun two-tone colors and unmatched durability of the Candy Shell, yet the iFrog...
Two Compost Bins, One Lucky Winner!
Squirrels, and mice, and bears - oh my! Several of you who entered our giveaway this month mentioned that you would like your next composter to be pest-proof. Well, good news! All Lifetime Composters are already pest-proof! That's right. We've made it difficult for little pests to climb onto Lifetime Compost Tumblers by raising them off the ground. Our lids securely latch tight to keep the pests out and compost in. And, the double-walled, high-density polyethylene shell prevents rodents - and even bears - from making holes in Lifetime Composters. Yes, I said BEARS! Check out one of our previous blog posts that shows pictures from actual customers who have had their Lifetime Composters survive bear attacks! So, we can happily check "pest-proof" of our list for our next composter design. But, we'll certainly be looking at ways...
