Judges for science fair at MOST needed

Share your knowledge and encourage our young scientists. The Greater Syracuse Scholastic Science Fair returns for another year of scientific research and fun with the help of bright and motivated students throughout central New York.

The GSSSF, through the efforts of the Milton J. Rubenstein Museum of Science & Technology, is an opportunity for grade-level and high school students to showcase their scientific achievements. This year's fair will be held on Sunday, March 29 at Solvay High School.

Each year more than 200 professionals including researchers, scientists, engineers, university faculty and science enthusiasts volunteer their time at this prestigious science fair to talk with and reward these outstanding students. The judges determine which students will receive either a Special Award or an age-based GSSSF Award for their hard work.

If you are interested in spending just one day talking with these remarkable young people about their research projects, please consider becoming a Science Fair judge. Student participants put a lot of time and effort into their research and one of the highlights of their experience is being able to discuss what they have done with those who are interested in their work and willing to encourage them to continue.

You can register to be a judge today at most.org/gsssf/index.cfm. The deadline for applications will be Friday, March 20. All judges need to be willing to actively listen to students and encourage their work. Lunch and parking will be provided.

The GSSSF began in 1980, with a goal to encourage youth in Central New York to conduct scientific research. The fair is now celebrating its 30th year.
