Science Fair Judges Needed

It’s that time of year again! I would love to have you come this year judge our 7th and 8th grade Murphy Middle School Science and Engineering Fair on November 28th. Judging will start around 8:15 am and will conclude about 12:30 pm, or earlier should your category(s) be small.


Judging takes roughly about 3-3.5 hours. We greatly appreciated all your assistance last year and your wealth of knowledge you brought to our judging.

Would you be able to assist our science and engineering fair at Murphy?!?! If you have a science background and are able to assist us, please specify what science category you would like to judge from the list below and fill out the link. Please visit https://goo.gl/forms/UiKrsE941X408fAs2 with your judging preferences. Please let us know if you have a student that will be entering the fair, to maintain fairness we will not allow parents to judge their student’s categories.

Your time and science expertise is essential to assisting our students to do achieve!
