Judges needed to volunteer for the 55th Annual Baltimore Science Fair

The ASQ Baltimore Section has once again been invited to participate in the 55th Annual Baltimore Science Fair to be held at Towson University. As in past years, the Baltimore Section will provide volunteer judges and awards to students participating in the Baltimore Science Fair. The Section has been continuously supporting the Science Fair for about 20 years.

  1. Section members volunteer as independent judges for ASQ and earn Recertification Points.
  2. Judging takes place on Saturday, March 27th, at the Towson University Student Union. On Saturday the commitment is from 8:30 AM until about 2 PM.
  3. The Awards Ceremony takes place on Sunday, March 28th. If you can assist in presenting the awards, the commitment is from 3:30 PM until about 5 PM at the Towson University Student Union.
  4. Judges from our ASQ Section will adjudicate the student exhibits for their use and understanding of statistical principles and statistical thinking and provide recognition awards.
  5. The Section will also recognizes teams of students for effectively working together to solve their chosen problem.
  6. Members interested in volunteering to be a Judge may contact the Science Fair Committee Chair, Kevin Gilson, at 410-884-9165 or .

The Fair attracts winners of school and county-based science fairs from Maryland’s Baltimore Region. Students represent public and private schools and home schools. Students come from middle (Division 1) and high (Division 2) schools within Baltimore, Carroll, Harford, and Howard Counties and Baltimore City. The Fair is now operated by the non-profit Baltimore Science Fair Foundation and is additionally sponsored by the following organizations: Towson University, Lockheed Martin Corp., Baltimore County Public Schools, Constellation Energy Group, and Howard Co Public Schools. The Baltimore Section of ASQ is a contributing supporter.

Is your organization on this list? Your organization can also be a Fair sponsor. Contact Kevin for information.

Winners from the Baltimore Science Fair will compete in the International Science and Engineering Fair in May.

This is a great way to give back to the local community.
