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.

The judging commitment is to be present on both days of the Fair. 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!

*We plan to provide shuttles to/from the 2023 Science Fair, which will

take place at Floyd Little Athletic Center (480 Sherman Pkwy, New Haven, CT 06511). Free parking is also available.
