Student Tech Fair Rubric

Access the Student Tech Fair Rubric as a reference for how student projects will be scored by judges. This rubric gives things to think about when creating the project along with sample questions that students might want to address within their presentation.

Be a Judge

We are always looking for judges. Judging is a great way to ‘preview’ the fair to see if it’s something you want your students to participate in. It’s also a great way for industry leaders to interact with students. No experience necessary!
