Judges evaluate the Science Fair projects according to a set of guidelines developed by the Science Fair Program. They receive training and collaborate with fellow judges. They get the opportunity to speak one-on-one with the students to hear about their projects. When registering they can select their preference for the type and grade level of the projects they judge.

Judges are needed to judge projects on Monday and Tuesday during the Fair. The judging commitment is to be present on both Monday and Tuesday. See the schedule below.


Judges are local graduate students, post-docs, faculty, researchers, and industry professionals. Come network with other STEM students and professionals, and see young scientists at work!

*As was done last year: We will provide shuttles to/from the Science Fair,

which will take place at Floyd Little Athletic Center

(480 Sherman Pkwy, New Haven, CT 06511).
