Science Fair

Sign up as a Judge for this year's Science Fair!

Friday, December 13th 9:00 am-Noon

The Science Fair is a great opportunity for students to see that science is not an idle academic chore, but an active and engaging process. The top ten contestants from Mather will advance to the area district science fair at Northeastern University.

Make a memorable impact on the lives of some very talented students. Share your knowledge and excitement about science with the Mather student body. All scientific disciplines will be represented -- biology, chemistry, physics, health care, engineering, astronomy, computer science and more! As a judge you will listen to student presentations, ask questions, and give meaningful critiques of the students' work.
