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 Carleton University will be hosting next year's Canada-Wide Science Fair from May 12-19, 2018. Students from all across the country will be competing for close to $1 million dollars in cash, prizes and scholarships.
