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 SciFairs@biophysics.org.  Additionally, BPS will sponsor an award at regional and state science fairs where members are willing to judge.  This is an excellent opportunity for members who are already volunteering at their local events to raise awareness about the field of biophysics.   

Interested in being a judge at a science fair you see below? Email SciFairs@biophysics.org!       

For 2017, we are participating in the following upcoming fairs. Fairs marked with a "*" have indicated that they cannot provide a judge for us, so we may not be able to award one of their students unless we have a volunteer judge from our membership.
