Science Fair Volunteers Needed

Join the Walnut Acres students as they embark on a fun scientific adventure!  We need parent volunteers to help with set-up, check-in of projects, judging, and clean-up. 

Our greatest need is for volunteers to judge the projects. All it involves is talking to the students about their projects and asking a few questions from a prepared score sheet. It's lots of fun and exciting to see the projects and the pride that the students take in their work. No prior judging experience is required. A brief training and score sheets will be provided. We especially need parents with children in younger grades who are able to judge 4th or 5th grade projects. No experience necessary. Sign up here to volunteer!  

Need more information? See the flyer that was sent home before the winter break, or visit the PFC website at Or, refer to the project guidelines and judges standards for complete information on preparing for Walnut Acre's Science Fair.

If you have questions (or if you want to join the Science Fair Leadership team), please contact Science Fair Coordinators Marci Cole Ekberg or Vani Rajagopalan at
