    Yes, it is hard to take in and judge 50 projects in a day. Now imagine being a judge at a county or state science fair, with 400–900 projects spread out over even more different fields. Mistakes are made and the choice of who gets the big prizes is often more dependent on how eloquent a particular judge is than on the relative merits of projects if they are in different fields.

    That is considered a very basic first soldering project.
