Each year, the Greater Vancouver Regional Science Fair (GVRSF) welcomes returning and new judges who will evaluate the projects of hundreds of students on a variety of criteria such as scientific thought, originality and creativity, and communication. The judging is one of the most critical moments of the fair, when the students have a chance to discuss, communicate and share their ideas with scientists…and who knows, perhaps future colleagues and mentors.
Judging at the GVRSF is an enjoyable and constructive experience. For students, it provides a chance to share the results of many hours of hard work and to receive some helpful feedback from experts in their areas of interest. For judges, the interviews provide a chance to learn about the remarkable work - and enthusiasm - of some of Greater Vancouver’s brightest young scientists.
The GVRSF is – for most students – the final stage in the science fair process. Students originally participating in classroom and school fairs proceed to the level of district fairs followed by regional fairs like the GVRSF. As a judge, you will play a role in deciding which of the projects will be sent to the national level. The Canada-Wide Science Fair takes place in Montreal, Quebec in May of 2016.
This year, judging of projects will take place on Thursday, April 6, 2017, from 1:30pm to 9 pm.
