Correction on "Adopt-a-School Science Fair Gets Better and Better"

    In the March 23 article "Adopt-a-School Science Fair Gets Better and Better," the editor mistakenly attributed the wrong mentors to the prize-winning SARSEF projects. Mentors and mentees should have been matched as follows:

    • Manuela Gildebride's kindergartners, first place in physical sciences; special prizes from Tucson Electric Power and the Arizona Hydrological Association: graduate student Sandra Bernal from the Arid Lands Resource Sciences Graduate Interdisciplinary Program and OSC undergraduate Jason Meyer
    • Shirley Blair's third-graders, first place in earth science: OSC postdoctoral researchers Klaus Dolling and Pascal Mickelson
    • Matthew Tyo, honorable mention from the International Dark Skies Association: OSC graduate student Danielle Doughty and OSC alumna Page King, B.S. in OSE 2012

    Watts Up! regrets the error and appreciates the amazing outreach work done by all faculty, staff, undergraduates and graduate students.
