2014 JUDGING INFORMATION
Thank you for visiting the George Washington Carver Science Fair web site. We cordially invite you to serve as a judge at the 35th annual George Washington Carver Science Fair.
The Carver Science Fair encourages urban youth to pursue academic achievement, careers in science, civic involvement, and character development. Jointly sponsored by The School District and The Archdiocese of Philadelphia, Temple University, and the Academy of Natural Sciences of Drexel University, the Fair is open to all Philadelphia public, charter, parochial, private, and home school students in grades four through twelve. Since its inception in 1979, over 30,000 students have participated in the Carver Science Fair and have, in many cases, moved on to compete in the Delaware Valley Science Fair.
As in previous years, the judging day includes a continental breakfast, a brief introduction to the fair, project evaluations through the morning, a buffet lunch, the opportunity to network with colleagues, and individual student interviews. Judges also receive free parking.
The dates, times, and locations of this year’s judging activities are:
Grades 4 through 6
Wednesday, February 19, 2014 from 8:30 AM to 4:30 PM
The Academy of Natural Sciences, 19th Street and Benjamin Franklin Parkway
7 through 12
Thursday, March 6, 2014, from 8:30 AM to 4:30 PM
Student Pavilion at Temple University, 15th Street between Norris St. & Montgomery Ave.
If you can serve as a Carver Science Fair judge on either or both of the Fair dates, please complete the on-line judge’s registration form below. Once you register you will receive an electronic confirmation and further details as the Carver Science Fair approaches.
If you know of other individuals who might like to participate as judges, please forward this web site to them. The Carver Science Fair continually seeks to expand its pool of eligible and available judges. A science fair judge need not be employed in a science or education field, but should possess a comfortable background in science, math, technology, engineering, and/or education as well as have an appreciation for science education.
Thank you, in advance, for your interest in the George Washington Carver Science Fair. For additional details or information, please contact Dr. Kathy Fadigan, Judges Chairperson, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
