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.

How to Play Kayak Football
Last week, I had the fun opportunity to tag along with the Lifetime marketing and graphic design teams to test the new Lifetime kayakson Willard Bay, a lake just north of the Lifetime headquarters in Utah. I've kayaked before, but this was my first time trying out the Lifetime kayaks. We were using the Calypso and Daylite models, which are identical 8' molds with the exception of the type of backrest and color. Personally, I preferred the Daylite model because the backrest felt more comfortable to me since it came up a bit higher. And, the feature of being able to store valuables inside the backrest is pretty handy, too. As we've mentioned before, Lifetime kayaks are designed specifically for beginners and are, consequently,extremely stable. In fact, they are so stable that even when the photographer's dog would jump on a ka...
