Science in the Community

Community Initiatives

Children of today are the scientists of tomorrow. To foster a love of learning and science in the next generation, the UFV Faculty of Science supports fun and engaging science programming, targeted at elementary, middle school and high school students.

Fraser Valley Regional Science Fair

Science Fairs are held each year in hundreds of elementary and secondary schools around the province. Projects can come in the form of a report, a demonstration or a model. All must follow specific criteria and all must display original scientific research.

Students in the Fraser Valley are given the opportunity to display their outstanding projects to the public through the Regional Science Fair held each year in April or May at UFV.
