Science Fair Judges Needed!

Posted February 14, 2017 by

High School Division

Friday, May 5, 2017 | 10:00 am – 4:00 pm

Massachusetts Institute of Technology
Johnson Athletic Center

The Massachusetts State Science & Engineering Fair (MSSEF) provides an opportunity for middle school (MS) and high school (HS) students to create authentic independent research & innovation projects in science, technology, and engineering throughout each school year. MSSEF then features the most outstanding projects by students from across the state at a culminating showcase & competition (MS & HS divisions).

Sharing your expertise with these students can make a difference!  At the HS event at MIT, more than 350 judges are required to evaluate students’ presentations of their research process and findings/prototypes.  Many of these students have invested over 1,000 hours in their projects!

Just a few hours of your volunteer time will help to encourage these students in their quest for excellence in science, technology, engineering and math.  For students and judges alike, it’s an experience that lasts a lifetime!

 

Volunteer to Judge!

Please consider becoming a member of the distinguished judging panel at the 2017 State Science & Engineering Fair. If you have received at least a four-year college degree in a science or technology field, and work in a related field, you are eligible to be a judge. Because of the popularity of some project categories, individuals with expertise in the life sciences are in demand!
