Delaware Valley Science Fairs
Valley Science Fairs
are seeking research-experienced scientists, engineers or technologists
willing to volunteer one day of their expertise to help one of the most
important STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) education programs in the Delaware Valley.
Independent research by students
in the tri-state Delaware Valley area is usually presented first in
their schools and then in regional Science Fairs from which the winners
in each category and grade advance to the Delaware Valley Science
Fairs in April. In turn, the Medalists from these fairs will
be sent to the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair (ISEF)
held in Phoenix, Arizona on May 7 to 14, 2016 At each level, students and their sponsors will
meet and learn from their peers and their judges.
It is the intention
of all Science Fairs that students receive as much positive
reinforcement for their efforts as possible. It is important for
students to meet people, such as you, because that experience enriches
their education and perhaps encourages them to pursue a career in
science or engineering. It also provides you with a chance to see
how STEM education is
progressing in our schools, and to contribute to that progress. A few
minutes of professional contact with a student scientist or engineer may
make a life-time of difference in their career.
Judging requires a full day. Judging instruction
and support is included, along with a continental breakfast and box lunch.
Contact with student scientists in a
Science Fair is a rewarding experience for scientists or technicians who
have recent experience in any field of medicine, science or engineering.
Judging day for the 2016 DVSF will be March 30, 2016.
We ask Judges to report at 7:30 AM in Exhibit Hall B at the Greater
Philadelphia Expo Center in Oaks, PA.
Note: All of our communications with Judges
is through e-mail, so it is important that we have your current e-mail
address. We will not be sending any correspondence through the
United States Postal Service. Thank
you again for your support!!
