Thank you for showing an interest in judging at the next Science Expo. This year, we are planning on having an on-site event, so judging will be done in person.
As we are a certified feeder to the international level of competition, we need to state the qualifications for judges. If you have received a four-year college degree or work in an area of science and/or technology, you are eligible to judge.. This year’s Expo will include an Open Competition and a Challenge Competition. In the Open Competition, the students present their independent research efforts through poster presentations and interviews. In the Challenge Competition, student teams compete against each other in designed challenges.
Duties, Procedures and Timing
When judging research projects in person, you would probably spend approximately 15-20 minutes viewing each presentation as displayed on the poster board, and discussing the research involved with the student(s) present. You will tabulate the score earned by the student(s) using an evaluation sheet which will be provided to you and explained before the judging starts. Try to evaluate honestly.
