Science Fairs

Get Out of The Lab: Volunteer At Your Local Science Fair!

BPS has sponsored student awards at regional and state science fairs since 2009. This growing initiative, sponsored by the Public Affairs Committee, promotes the teaching and learning of science, technology, engineering, and math in US schools, and raises awareness about biophysics at the high school level.

To volunteer as a judge or if you have other questions about BPS Science Fair awards, please contact the Society Office at   This is an excellent opportunity for members who are already volunteering at their local events to raise awareness about the field of biophysics.   

Questions or suggestions? Email!       

Below are the fairs at which we will be presenting the Biophysics Award. If you are interested in volunteering to judge for any of the below fairs, please email to let us know so that we can make the arrangements with the fair organizers.
