Science Expo Judges Needed

The 3rd annual COCC Regional Science Expo (formally the Intel Regional Science Fair) is quickly approaching! This science fair is part of the overall Intel Science competition and winners can go to state or larger regional competitions. The Saturday event (March 5th) will be hosted on the COCC campus.  20–25 judges are needed, with each judge observing and interviewing 3–5 projects. Judges need not be subject matter experts, particularly at the middle school level. All you need is a passion for STEM and general understanding of the scientific method. It is a lot of fun getting to see the science projects that these students complete, it is a fairly short time commitment, and a delicious lunch is provided!

If you would like to sign up to be a judge, please register online at www.affiliatedfairs.org. If you have any questions please contact the STEM Hub. This is a wonderful opportunity to connect with some of our future STEM students.
