Science Fair Season in Alberta 2016
Filed Under: Gerry Ward

Here we go again! It’s science fair season in Alberta. The students are working hard on their projects and the adults are busy raising funds and planning for the showcase events which begin in mid-March and continue through to the Canada-Wide Science Fair which will be held this year in Montreal from May 15 – 20.

Genome Alberta has been a sponsor of Alberta’s regional science fairs since 2006. Genome Alberta awards are presented to students with outstanding projects in the life sciences, and especially in genetics and genomics.

I hope that teachers encourage students to pursue science fair projects. These STEM activities build proficiency and confidence in cross-curricular areas integrating science, technology, engineering and mathematics with language arts, oral presentation skills, and graphic arts.

You can find your local fair date and location listed below. Please take this opportunity to become involved or just take in the excitement of your local Science Fair.
