Each year, about 5000 elementary and high school students from Langley to Boston Bar prepare and exhibit science projects at their schools. The top 250 projects qualify to complete in the Fraser Valley Regional Science Fair at UFV. Six to eight outstanding young scientists from Grade 7 to 12 will also be selected to compete at the Canada-Wide Science Fair, in Winnipeg, Manitoba.
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 Wednesday 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 Monday and on Tuesday mornings.
Divisional judging takes place on Wednesday, March 24 from 8 am to 1 pm, with optional previewing of projects on Tuesday, March 23 from 7 to 8 pm. Judging the students takes place in Wednesday, March 24 from 1 to 3 pm.
Please let us know by March 15, 2010 if you and/or your colleagues are interested and available to participate as a judge.
