Science Fair Judging

The spring season brings science fairs to the region, which showcase the talent and aspirations of the remarkable students in our schools. The Washington Statistical Society has traditionally provided invaluable community support to these important events by nominating and sending delegations of official judges, who serve as representatives of our profession.

Local University Statistics students who are interested in serving as judges should contact Frank Yoon (609.945.6616) or Dhuly Chowdhury. The following science fairs in March need judges to volunteer in January or February:

  • Northern Virginia Regional Science and Engineering Fair
    Wakefield High School, Arlington, VA
    Saturday, March 4, 2017, 8:30 AM - 12 PM
  • DC STEM Fair
    Dunbar High School, Washington, DC
    Saturday, March 11, 2017, 9 AM-1 PM
  • Prince George's Area Science Fair
    Charles Herbert Flowers High School, Springdale, MD
    Saturday, March 18, 2017, 8:30 AM

  • Montgomery County Science Fair
    Food and Drug Administration White Oak Campus, Silver Spring

WSS science fair judges work as a team at each fair to identify science projects that demonstrate excellence in investigation or use of statistical methods. Every year, our junior high and high school students eagerly look forward to the opportunity to share their understanding of statistics, and our judges have always valued this rewarding experience.

For a recap of science fairs in 2013, please see this piece in Amstat News.
