A message from Fair Director Mike Gerhart,
The 62nd 2014 Reading Berks Science and Engineering Fair (rbsef.org) is using a new website to inform, register students, and register sponsoring teachers. Since this is a new website we are hoping there will be few issues using the website. I know from my 35 years teaching science and sponsoring students in this science fair requires a lot of teacher time. It is hoped this site will allow teachers to sponsor students with less effort and obtain more information on student project progress. One of the many features of the site allows a teacher to obtain a list of their students and their paperwork entered in the science fair using the new website.
To make this website work for you it is important that the teacher must register on the website before the students from your school register projects online. You will be asked for your email address and to create a personal password so that as your students from your building enter the science fair online you can track their progress etc. If you teach in more than one building check off all buildings that apply to you. Note, most teacher sponsors from the 2103 science fair are registered but you will still need to provide an email and passcode to complete your registration. When a student picks your name from a pull down list for your school building you will then be able to gather the student's entry information as needed. If all goes well you will not need to wait until the last minute to get your list of registered students as in past years. Now you can get the list of your building students anytime you want. Because each student and teacher will have email and passwords it will allow a teacher to better communicate with registered students in the school. All this should work if the teacher registers on the site before the students start registering the projects online.
Please contact me if there are any problems or concerns using the new website. Contact information is found below this message.

Judge Main Page
The Science Fair is judged by a panel of volunteer judges who donate their time and expertise to provide fair and impartial judging of student projects. We are greatful for the many judges who tirelessly aid in our fair, many of whom have served for decades.
Previous judges are contacted prior to the Fair and enrolled to judge in the categories of their expertise. If you haven't served as a judge previously and would like to volunteer, select the "Registration" tab on the left and choose "Judge" to provide your enrollment information.
Typically, five to seven judges will be responsible for ranking the entires in each of the Fair's twelve categories. The schedule for judges is:
Coffee 7:45 a.m.
Morning Judging 8:00 to 12:00
Buffet Lunch 11:30 to 12:15
Interviews 1:00 to 3:00
