Posted by Temple University on January 25, 2016


We cordially invite you to serve as a judge at the 37th 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, and private school students in grades four through twelve.

The judging day includes breakfast, an introduction to the fair, project evaluations, a buffet lunch, individual student interviews, and professional networking. The dates, times, and locations are:

Grades 4 through 6
Thursday, February 18, 2016 from 8:30 AM to 4:30 PM
The Academy of Natural Sciences of Drexel University, 19th Street and Benjamin Franklin Parkway

Grades 7 through 12
Friday, March 4, 2016, from 8:30 AM to 4:30 PM
Temple University, Student Pavilion, 15th Street between Norris and Montgomery Aves.

If you can serve as a Carver judge at either or both of the Fairs, register HERE.


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 service. For details, contact Dr. Kathy Fadigan, Judges Chairperson: kfadigan@temple.edu.
