Calling All Massachusetts Scientists: Science Fair Judges Needed!

The Massachusetts State Science & Engineering Fair (MSSEF) provides middle and high school students with the opportunity to work on independent research projects in science and engineering. Now in its 63rd year, the annual statewide fair will feature the highest quality projects of hundreds of students from across the Commonwealth. We will need more than 300 outstanding judges to donate their time to evaluate these students' work.  Some students invest more than 1,000 hours of research in their projects!

Volunteer to judge! Please consider being a member of the distinguished judging panel at the 2012 State Science & Engineering Fair.  If you have received a four-year college degree in a science or technology subject, and work in a related field, you are eligible to judge and may register online.

You can make a difference! Just a few hours of your time will help to encourage these young people in their quest for excellence in science and technology.  It's an experience that lasts a lifetime!

Orientation for new and experienced former judges is held immediately prior to each judging session.  Judges are typically assigned to projects within their respective area(s) of expertise. (Project categories include Behavioral Science, Biochemistry, Biology, Chemistry, Computers, Earth & Space Science, Engineering, Environmental Science, Mathematics and Physics & Electrical Science.)
