The 2021 Regional Science Engineering + Innovation Fair will take place on Friday, February 19, 2021. To maintain an emphasis on safety, the event will look different this year, but every effort is being made to maintain the excitement around the event.

This year project judging will be taking place on a digital platform with scheduled interviews of students and judges via web meetings. Judges will be assigned based on scheduling preferences and area of expertise. Detailed instructions and virtual training will take place prior to the event.


Thank you for your interest in serving as a Judge for the Gwinnett County Regional Science & Engineering Fair being held on Friday, February 19, 2021 as a virtual event.

Judges will have the opportunity to meet and interact with talented middle and high school students who are exploring their passions in science and engineering. Fair participants are eager to share their work with experts in their particular fields of interest. Judges will evaluate the quality of the work exhibited in the students’ projects.

Judges will be assigned projects to judge based on area of expertise and volume of student projects by category.  Judges will be assigned an online meeting room to interview students and learn about their project. Scores will be submitted digitally, allowing for quantitative and qualitative feedback and evaluation. Judges can choose to participate in morning judging, afternoon judging or all day judging.  We are thankful for you, our STEM community, and appreciate you considering lending your expertise to the next generation of STEM leaders!

Judging Time/Commitment:
High School: 8 a.m. – 11:30 a.m. (3.5 hrs) – 5 projects
Middle School: 12:30 p.m. – 3:30 p.m. (3 hrs) – 4 projects

Judges also serve as ambassadors of their respective professions, judges will have the opportunity to provide insight and wisdom potentially influencing career choices for these future leaders. For many of these students, this will be the first encounter with science and engineering professionals.
