Do you love science and have questions about how processes around us work? Do you have an idea on how you could help improve a problem in the world? We call all students from Grades K-12 in the Fraser Valley region (Langley, Chilliwack, Abbotsford, Hope, Mission, and Maple Ridge) to design a science fair project and positively affect our world through scientific discovery!
Each year the Fraser Valley Regional Science Fair invites students from the public, private and home schools in the region to present. Students can participate as a class, group or individually. At the regional level students compete for thousands of dollars in cash and prizes including the chance to join Team BC and represent the Fraser Valley at the Canada-Wide Science Fair (all expenses paid).
We are excited to announce that the Canada-Wide Science Fair will be returning to Fredericton in 2019! Students from all across the country will be competing for close to $1 million dollars in cash, prizes and scholarships.
April 10, 2019: Priyam Mehta, Grade 3 student from South Poplar Traditional Elementary School in Abbotsford had the opportunity to visit with Abbotsford Mayor, Henry Braun and present his science fair project "The Plastic Problem". Mayor Braun was very impressed with Priyam's project and shared his opinion about ocean and marine life. Priyam won the UFV Dean of Science Award (K-6) at the 2019 Fraser Valley Regional Science Fair in addition to receiving the second place prize from the Abbotsford-Mission Nature Club. Congratulations Priyam!

April 6, 2019: Our 2nd Annual Science Fair Open House and Public Viewing was a huge success! Over 100 people were entertained by lab demonstrations hosted by UFV faculty and students. Kids and adults enjoyed cool experiments in the chemistry and biology labs, physics entertained the audience with the tesla coil. Geography, Science Rocks! and the Super Science Club had some great hands on activities for everyone. In between shows, our visitors were able to view all of the amazing science fair projects and see what talent lies within the Fraser Valley.
A huge thank you to all of the volunteers who made this event possible.
