I have been intimately involved with Philadelphia’s George Washington Carver Science Fair for 19 (of its 24!) years. It is an under-appreciated local gem providing children and youth with academic enrichment, cognitive skill development, enhanced self esteem, opportunities for community service, and many other standards of positive youth development.

The Elementary (grades 4-6) and Secondary (grades 5-12) Fairs take place during the first and second week of March, 2004. They are held at the Academy of Natural Sciences and Temple University, respectively. The Carver Fair ALWAYS NEEDS JUDGES! You need not be a scientist, science expert, teacher, or science teacher to be an effective judge. The Fair simply wants people who can give up a day (or 2) to interact with children in a positive, supportive manner. In return, you will meet students passionate about learning, work with adults ranging from physicists to college freshmen, and partake in a truly unique experience.

For more information about the Carver Science Fair and how to participate, please visit its website: http://www.temple.edu/carversciencefair. Thanks, in advance, for considering this important opportunity and service. Please don’t hesitate to contact me for more details or information.


PS: Please pass this announcement on to others who might enjoy the experience.
