A love of science is bringing Surrey and Delta students in grades 7 through 12 together to present and showcase their discoveries at the South Fraser Regional Science Fair.
At Kwantlen Polytechnic University’s (KPU) Surrey campus this Friday and Saturday, more than 130 budding scientists representing 35 schools will present their projects and defend their findings in hopes of gaining recognition from the Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) community for their work.
The projects run the STEM gamut, demonstrating the students’ keen intellect and diligent research in the fields of biotechnology, earth and environmental science, engineering, health and life science, and physical and mathematical sciences.
Awards will include medals, trophies, scholarships, travel awards, and cash prizes valued at more than $20,000. Students will also be selected for up to eight coveted spots to the 2018 Canada-Wide Science Fair held in Ottawa in May.
The public is encouraged to visit the fair during public viewing on Saturday, April 21, from 11 a.m. to noon in the KPU Surrey conference centre located in the Cedar Building (12666-72 Ave., Surrey). Admission is free. Pay parking will be in effect.
