Judges needed for Carver Science Fair

Posted on January 28, 2005

You are invited to serve as a judge at the 26th 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, an the Academy of Natural Sciences, the Fair is open to all Philadelphia public, charter, parochial, and private school students in grades four through twelve. Since its inception in 1979, over 18,000 students have participated in the Carver 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, March 30, 2005 from 8:30 AM to 4:30 PM
The Academy of Natural Sciences, 19th Street and Benjamin Franklin Parkway

Grades 7 through 12
Tuesday, March 8, 2005, from 8:30 AM to 5:00 PM

If you can serve as a Carver Fair judge on either or both of the Fair dates, please visit the Internet link below and complete the on-line judge?s registration form under the judges information section. You will receive an electronic confirmation and further details as the Carver Fair approaches.


If you know of other individuals who might like to participate, please forward this e-mail to potential judges. The Carver 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.
