Judging

The Delaware 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 Los Angeles, California on May 17 to 19, 2017 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, box lunch and free parking.

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 2017 DVSF will be Wednesday, April 5, 2017. 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!!
