Science Fair season is almost over in Alberta. Now the finalists, announced at their regional fairs, are doing last minute touch-ups on their projects. The delegates are busy collecting the paperwork and I am part of the team that reads all the finalists’ 5-page summaries. We are all preparing for the Canada-Wide Science Fair
(CWSF), which will be held this year in Montreal from May 15 to 20. This year it is turning into an entire ‘science festival’. Besides the science fair component, there will also be immersive hands-on science activities, many engaging speakers and new this year – a STEM Teachers’ conference. It will be an exciting time for ‘Team Alberta’ and we at Genome Alberta wish them well on this adventure.
Genome Alberta sponsors awards for all Alberta science fair regions. Many of the Genome Alberta award winners will be representing their region with competitive projects at this year’s CWSF. We support independent research project-based learning and we are very proud of the outstanding young scientists who are recipients of this year’s Genome Alberta Awards.
