Texas Science and Engineering Fair 2017

Texas Science and Engineering Fair 2017

The John Jay Science & Engineering Academy is hosting its annual Science and Engineering Fair on Saturday, December 2nd, 2017 from 8:30 am-1:00 pm and we are seeking volunteers to serve as judges for the fair. 

Nearly 200 judges are required to provide feedback to our students. Our school fair is one of the largest of its kind in the state of Texas and the nation and includes nearly 600 students presenting their scientific research. Additionally, St. Mary’s University and the University of the Incarnate Word reward top students at our local fair with $560,000 in scholarships each year.

Projects include the STEM areas of Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Engineering, Math and Computers as well as projects in the Social Sciences such as Psychology and Sociology.  Project levels span beginner (freshmen) to advanced (upperclassmen).  Because of this wide spectrum of topics and levels, we need a variety of volunteers with different experiences and levels of training/interest.

Students who do well will be given the opportunity to advance to the Junior Academy of Science Competition at Robert E. Lee High School, and to the Alamo Regional Science Fair at St. Mary’s University. Some students will then go on to participate at the state and national level. The 2015-2016 research team earned over $600,000 in scholarships, over $2,000 in cash prizes and 17 special awards.

Judges are asked to arrive at 8:30am for a light breakfast, brief welcome and folder pick-up that will include the categories that they will be judging and scoring rubrics. Lunch will be served from 11:30pm-1:30pm in the library.  A certificate of participation will also be the judge’s folder noting the number of volunteer hours.

If you would like to be a judge, please go to the following google form:
