Judging

ONLINE JUDGING REGISTRATIONS ARE NOW OPEN FOR 2018!

We welcome all teachers including; pre-service, TRT or retired teachers and science industry professionals to consider becoming an Oliphant Science Awards judge! 

This competition gives judges an opportunity to view a broad range of projects from around the state. Judges can particpate either in their own home or school (Offsite Categories such as Science Writing, Scientific Inquiry, Games or Multimedia) or at a dedicated Judging Day (Computer Programming & Robotics or On-Site Categories such as Crystal Investigation, Photography, Posters or Models & Inventions).

Judges usually work as part of a judging team therefore allowing opportunities to network, gain ideas and inspiration. All judges will also receive a Professional Development Certificate for three hours per category worked on as a judge.

Have you considered your science faculty becoming involved in judging this year? 
Find out some of the benefits from previous judges below: 

  • It enables collaboration with a colleague in the judging process. It is often helpful to use discussion to clarify your thoughts when judging an entry.

  • Allows staff not familiar with the Oliphant Science Awards to be involved, and hopefully encourage them to promote future student entries within your school.

  • In larger categories, it is far more effective to be working with others to streamline the judging process.

  • Acts as a positive professional development activity with a whole faculty. Allows staff to see what students from other schools might be doing and therefore generated ideas for their own site.
