Individuals with a background in one of the sciences, engineering or mathematics are needed to serve as judges for the 16th Annual Connecticut STEM Fair to be held Saturday February 8, 2020 at Joel Barlow High School in Redding, CT.
What does being a judge involve?
- On the day of the Fair (February 9, 2019): Judging 5-8 projects or research proposals in Life Sciences, Physical Sciences, or Engineering. Judges are to arrive at the fair by 8:00 am on Saturday, and will be finished with judging by 1:00 pm. Judges are encouraged to stay for the Keynote Speaker and awards presentation that will begin at 1:30 pm.
- After judges check-in at 8:00 a.m on fair day, they will assemble with the other members of their team to review the projects assigned in advance, plus any additional assignments for their team. Judges will be offered on-line training via the fair website.
Judges work in teams of 2 or 3 members, each with a “captain” who has served as a judge previously. Each project is evaluated by 2 teams. Having as many judges as there are projects keeps the judging process manageable. It is important that the judging be concluded by 1 pm, so that the keynote presentation and awards ceremony can be held beginning at 1:30 pm. A continental breakfast and sandwich lunch will be provided to all judges.
