ENGINEERING JUDGE: Ted Timar, business development manager, Cedara Software Corp., Mississauga, Ont., Canada
JUNIOR JURORS: Rebecca, age 12; and Jessica, age 8
Our judge says that the Glasgow Science Centre "is one of the most modern and interactive science museums [he has] seen." Exhibits include medical imaging, computer technology, mechanics, and digital image manipulation, and a visit is "definitely" worth the price of admission. The junior jury particularly enjoyed the climbing wall, as well as morphing one photograph into another. Asked for an opinion of the exhibits, junior juror Rebecca said that they were "good and educational," while junior juror Jessica was "too busy enjoying herself to answer the question."
