Celebrating Young Scientists
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.
REGISTRATION IS NOW CLOSED - Deadline March 11
The 2022 Canada-Wide Science Fair will return to a virtual format from May 16-20, 2022. Following the impressive results of its first all-virtual event, held in May, organizers confirmed that the 2022 edition will feature expanded components such as STEM Expo, Virtual Project Zone and CWSF-TV, but also new programming related to Fredericton and New Brunswick, the host city and province, and an emphasis on the history of the fair. Due to unknown restrictions on travel, accommodations and event logistics, as well as the time required for participants and organizers to make all necessary arrangements, the decision was unanimously made by the Youth Science Canada (YSC) staff and endorsed by the board. The organization is planning for a hybrid fair in Edmonton in 2023 with virtual elements to welcome visitors from across Canada. Read the full article from Youth Science Canada.
