  • How will my science project be scored?
    You will present your project to judges, typically in the form of a poster and a logbook. Judges will evaluate your project based on a provided questionnaire (judges form). For reference check a previous year's judges form.
  • Are group science projects accepted?
    Yes, you may present a group project (maximum 2 students per project).
  • How to choose and complete a science project?
    Here are some resources for you: NASA - Jet Propulsion Laboratory Science Buddies Science Fair Central
  • Are there any safety regulations to consider when preparing my project?
    Please follow all policies and procedures stated by Youth Science Canada that are relevant to your project:
  • What are the Science Olympics?
    It's science games for the fair participants and any school-age children. Students may participate even if they haven't submitted a science project. Students are presented with challenges that need to solve in teams. If you register to present a science project, you will automatically be registered for Science Olympics. For non-science fair participants, there is a separate registration link on this page.
  • May I present my project in French?
  • Do I need to participate (or even win) in a school science fair so that I can present my project at the regional science fair?
    Nope. Students are not required to participate in a school science fair. However, if your school organizes one, we highly encourage you to present first your science project there as this may help you improve it.
