Science Fair Judges Needed

Science Fair season is coming up. Traditionally, the IEEE has provided both prizes and judges for local fairs and we need your help once again. These fairs provide an opportunity for students from middle schools and high schools to show their projects and hear comments from professionals like you. Projects range from the simple to the sophisticated, but behind every project is a student who is anxious to find out what you think about it. As a judge you will interact with students and help them understand what they did right and how they could do better next time.

This year we will be supporting three science fairs: San Mateo (Monday, February 29), Santa Cruz (Saturday, March 12), and Santa Clara (Thursday, March 17). Generally, the judging starts about 10:00 AM and lasts until about 4:00 PM (however, the San Mateo Fair is judged in the evening). Even if you can only stay a few hours your help will still be greatly appreciated by the students. No previous experience or specialized knowledge is necessary only patience and common sense.

If you are interested in helping out at one of these fairs, or sponsor a prize, please call Charlie Neuhauser at (408) 245-0085 (W) or E-mail him at You can find out more about the fairs at the following sites:
