The John Jay Science & Engineering Academy is hosting its annual Science and Engineering Fair on Saturday, December 3rd, 2016 from 8:30 am-1:00 pm and we are seeking volunteers to serve as judges for the fair.

Nearly 200 judges are required to provide feedback to our students. Our school fair is one of the largest of its kind in the state of Texas and the nation and includes nearly 700 students presenting their scientific research. Additionally, St. Mary's University and the University of the Incarnate Word reward top students at our local fair with $560,000 in scholarships each year.

Projects include the STEM areas of Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Engineering, Math and Computers as well as projects in the Social Sciences such as Psychology and Sociology. 

Project levels span beginner (freshmen) to advanced (upperclassmen). Because of this wide spectrum of topics and levels, we need a variety of volunteers with different experiences and levels of training/interest.
