Students from across the Fraser Valley came together April 4-7, 2017 to compete for thousands of dollars in cash and prizes including the chance to represent Team BC at the Canada Wide Science Fair to be held in Regina, Saskatchewan next month. All of the participants had the pleasure of meeting the Honourable Judith Guichon, Lieutenant Governor of BC when she stopped by to visit each of them on Judging Day!
The Grand Prize winners, of an all-expenses paid trip to the Canada-Wide Science Fair were Mac Smith (Clayburn Middle School, Abbotsford), Anna-Lisa Nguyen (Walnut Grove Secondary, Langley) and Jennifer Tran (R.E. Mountain Secondary, Langley). They will be joining over 500 of Canada’s top young scientists at the University of Regina May 14-20, 2017 and be competing for nearly $1,000,000 in awards, prizes and scholarships.

The Fraser Valley Regional Science Fair is for open to all students in the Lower Mainland:
Science Fairs are held each year in hundreds of elementary and secondary schools around the province. Projects can come in the form of a report, a demonstration or a model. All must follow specific criteria and all must display original scientific research. Students in the Fraser Valley are given the opportunity to display their outstanding projects to the public through the Regional Science Fair held each year at UFV.
We will be sending at least 2 students (all expenses paid) to the Canada Wide Science Fair to be held in Regina, Saskatchewan on May 14-20, 2017.
