Each day brings forth new challenges and considerations about how to best move forward with TXSEF in 2020. The wellbeing of the students, their families and our judges is our primary concern. While we hope to host a virtual state fair, we will not advance students to the Regeneron International Science and Engineering Fair this year. If we are able to proceed with a virtual state fair in the coming months, we hope you will still consider judging. New details about how or whether TXSEF will continue will be shared by 5 p.m. on April 10.
Category Judge Qualifications
Criteria for Senior Division Judges: in pursuit of a master’s degree or higher or at least five years experience in a science and/or engineering field.
Criteria for Junior Division Judges: in pursuit of a bachelor’s degree or higher. In lieu of a degree, judges may have at least three years experience in a science and/or engineering field or four years work experience in a physical or life science field.
Category Judges are responsible for reviewing projects as well as providing encouragement and constructive criticism; your opinions are highly valued by these students. We expect over 1200 students participating in 20+ categories.
Judging takes place in two age groups:
- Junior level (middle school students)
- Senior level (high school students)
There also are two project types:
- Individual (completed by a single student)
- Team (completed by a team of students)
The deadline to register as a Judge is April 10, 2020.
