St. Louis’ Science Fair: Call for collegiate judges

The College of Arts and Sciences is hosting the Honors Division of the Academy of Sciences, St. Louis’ Science Fair on Saturday, Feb. 24. Roughly 75 science experts from the region will judge student projects during a morning poster session and an afternoon oral defense.

The top ten students will receive $1,000 college scholarship, and the top two will be invited to attend the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair in Pittsburgh.

Call-to-Participate

The Academy of Science - St. Louis is seeking volunteers with advanced degrees or certification (M.D., Ph.D., P.E., D.Sc., et al.) to evaluate collegiate-quality student science projects. Grad students in science-related field are eligible.
