National Science Fair Judges Needed
Have you ever wanted to try your hand at being a science fair judge? Well you're in luck - the biggest of all science fairs is coming to Toronto, and the organizers are looking for scientists from all walks of life to help out! If you're a student, a postdoc, a PI, a technician, or just a science enthusiast, you're more than welcome to join up!
Speaking from experience, being a science fair judge is extremely rewarding. I've judged at the local school level, the Toronto-wide level, and this year I'm going to add the national level to the list. You'd be amazed at what some of these kids can come up with! I don't know how many times I've thought, "but you're only in grade 6 - how can you already be so smart?"
Here are the details for all that are interested. Trust me, you won't regret doing this.
