Local K-12 Science Fair Judging

Community schools in the Michiana area often contact Notre Dame teaching and research faculty to ask for qualified individuals to judge K-12 science fairs, typically taking about half a day. You'll often see emails from Michelle Whaley, Jennifer Robichaud, and others asking for volunteers - so watch out for them or contact those folks directly. It's a great opportunity to foster curiosity and excitement about science in youngsters!
