Science and engineering judges

The Office of Academic Special Programs is seeking graduate students and professionals from the UGA community to serve as judges for the Georgia Science and Engineering Fair.

To be held April 1 at the Classic Center in downtown Athens, the fair is a forum for middle and high school students to showcase original research, compete for awards and interact with top scientists from around the state. Judges, who will receive an orientation and training the morning of the fair, will interview the students about their research and select award winners.

Approximately 300 judges are needed to evaluate more than 650 exhibits in animal sciences, behavioral sciences, biochemistry, cellular and molecular biology, chemistry, computer science, earth sciences, energy, engineering, environmental sciences, mathematics, medicine, microbiology, physics and astronomy, and plant sciences.
