Mar. 6, 2018: Judge the 39th Annual Carver Science Fair!

We cordially invite you to serve as a judge at the 39th 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. Since its inception in 1979, over 36,000 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 throughout the afternoon. Judges also receive free parking.

The dates, times, and locations of this year’s judging activities are:
Grades 4 through 6
Wednesday, February 21, 2018, 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
Tuesday, March 6, 2018, from 8:30 AM to 4:30 PM

If you can serve as a Carver Science Fair judge on either or both of the Fair dates, please visit the Internet link below and complete the on-line judge’s registration form under the Be a Judge section. Once you register you are automatically added to our list of judges. You will receive further details as the Carver Science Fair approaches.

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.
