Carver Science Fair seeks judges

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, 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 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.

Judges are needed on Tuesday, February 24th from 8:30am to 4:30pm at the Academy of Natural Sciences, 19th St. and Benjamin Franklin Parkway, to judge the grades 4 through 6 competition, and on Tuesday, March 10th, 8:30am to 4:30pm at Temple University, Broad Street and Montgomery Avenue, for grades 7 through 12.
