This message is to let you know that the 2014 Vancouver Island Science Fair is coming up soon, and we are once again looking for judges. This year the fair will be held on Sunday April 13 and Monday April 14, in the Elliott Lecture Wing at the University of Victoria. *Judges are needed for Sunday, April 13.*
Eeach judge reads brief reports for up to six projects, asks questions of the presenters for each project, and then works with other judges to rank the projects. In Round II of judging you will see another group of up to six top projects from the same age level, and be asked to rank them against your morning projects.
HOWEVER - the MOST IMPORTANT aspect of this event is the interaction between the young ones and experts in various fields. It is a really fun time.
an approximate schedule is as follows:
8:00 - 9:30
Arrival, get badges, find groups in Room 167
9:30 - 10:00
