Each year, about 5000 elementary and high school students from the Fraser Valley prepare and exhibit science projects at their schools. The top 250 projects qualify to complete in the Fraser Valley Regional Science Fair at UFV. One to nine outstanding young scientists from Grade 7 to 12 will also be selected to compete at the Canada-Wide Science Fair.
Projects fall into one of six divisions: Biotechnology, Earth & Environmental Sciences, Engineering & Computing Sciences, Health Sciences, Life Sciences, and Physical & Mathematical Sciences. Read more about them here.
Projects in the six divisions are evaluated for scientific merit and creativity. Divisional judging determines Gold, Silver, Bronze and Honorable Mention ribbons. Students will be present during judging on Thursday from 1 – 5 p.m. Judges will be given a timetable of projects to interview in 15-minute time blocks. Preliminary judging without the students present will occur Thursday morning.
Divisional judging takes place on Thursday from 1:00 pm - 3:30 pm, with optional previewing of projects on Thursday morning 10:00 am - 12:00 pm. Judging the students takes place on Thursday from 1:00 pm - 3:30 pm.
