You could probably complain about the judge, explain the situation and ask for another one. It's worth a shot.
Judges are meant to determine just how well you know the subject matter, and if you can convey the information in an accurate and easy to understand way to a person who has no idea what you're talking about. It doesn't matter if he already knew what glucose is; the point is that he's playing a part and judging how well the OP can inform him. This is probably a middle or high school presentation, and is designed to enhance presentation skills. The judge was actually doing his job. Source: Have judged and been judged for similar events.
#25, You're right. When I went to districts science fair, the judges there pretended they didnt know what the rocks were (I was doing a thing with rocks and acid). They're supposed to make you feel like you're presenting it to a crowd of people, not just a professional judge.
How can someone judging science presentations possibly not know what glucose is?
Maybe you didn't sweet talk the judge enough? Sometimes things are better received with a little sugar coating.
