[ARCHIVED] Montana Tech seeks judges for February Science Fair

Montana Tech is looking for Science Fair Judges!

Over 500 students participate in the Tech Science & Engineering Fair annually. Competitive science fair programs are a critical first element in presenting to students in grades 5 through 12 the opportunities and excitement present in science and engineering careers. The key to the success of these fairs is instilling in students a feeling of accomplishment and peer connection to their fellow competitors. To ensure that each of our participating students has quality experience, the fair must recruit over 200 judges to visit one on one with the students regarding their research.

On Monday, February 23rd, judging is a half-day commitment, 9:00 AM to 12:00 PM for elementary students or 1:00 PM to 3:00 PM for junior high students. On Wednesday, February 25th, judges will be needed from 9:00 AM to 3:00 PM to judge the high school fair and require an advanced degree in a STEM discipline. If you or anyone on your staff could contribute three hours or more on Monday or Wednesday toward this worthwhile cause, please contact Bernie Phelps, Judges Chair, at 496.4565 or or register below.
