The 42nd annual regional science fair took place at St. Lawrence High School this past Saturday April 1st and to all of the students who participated it was not an April fool’s joke, especially for the four top winners who are now off to the national competition in Regina next month!
This year’s fair involved over 350 students from 20 area schools and the five school boards. Over $14,000.00 in prizes, awards, trophies, and trips were given out. Grades 1 to 5 students were well represented with 235 science related wall posters and 116 grade 6 to 12 students displayed and explained their projects to 50 judges and hundreds of members of the public.
“This year’s fair was a great success, with an excellent turnout”, said Jason Marshall, the Chair of the organizing committee.
The four students with the best projects at this year’s fair have now won a spot at the national competition, the Canada Wide Science Fair, which takes place at the University of Regina from May 14th to 21st, showcasing the projects of the top 500 students from across Canada with awards totalling approximately $1,000,000.00. The four area students are: Cullen St. Clair, a grade 7 student from Char-Lan District High School with his project “How Weight Affects Traction”, along with the team of grade 8 students Ève Tremblay and Megan Tremblay-Doyle from École secondaire publique l’Héritage with their project “La vie en vert”, as well as Emytt Fetterly, a grade 8 student from Seaway District High School with his project “How fast is fast acting pain reliever?”.
