Science-minded volunteers are greatly needed in the Clear Creek School District, which is looking for Science Fair judges.
Each year students from 26 elementary schools, 10 intermediate schools and 7 high schools in Clear Creek ISD work diligently to complete an independent research topic of their own choosing. They then compete at their individual school for the opportunity to advance to the CCISD District Science Fair on Jan.12. Projects from approximately 800 students are then evaluated by teams of judges to be selected as Grand Award winners or place winners.
To properly evaluate this huge number of projects and to provide effective feedback to students, approximately 200 judges are required. Professionals in the community are called upon to spend the afternoon of Jan. 12, examining the projects, interviewing the students (secondary division only) and collaborating with their fellow judges to determine the place winners in each category.
“Many of our judges have participated for years, and consider this to be an opportunity to reach out and support the scientists of tomorrow,” explained Secondary Science Coordinator Terri Berry.
