Competing at our regional science fair is only the beginning! Within the National Science Fair Program, the Canada-Wide Science Fair constitutes the national championship round, where finalists from Regional Science Fairs across the country meet and compete.
In bringing Canada’s top young scientists together, the CWSF aims to accomplish two primary goals: to help participants benchmark their scientific and technological achievements against those of peers and to create a positive scientific and social experience for all the young people involved. A secondary goal is to expose other students in the CWSF’s geographic area to peer role models – the best young science and technology minds in the country. The CWSF takes place in May in a different Canadian city each year. Youth Science Canada-affiliated Regional Science Fairs apply to host the CWSF up to four years in advance.
For students interested in pushing their science fair experience further, various international programs exists and we encourage our GVRSF participants to apply!
The world’s largest international pre-college science competition, annually provides a forum for more than 1,600 high school students from over 70 countries, regions, and territories to showcase their independent research and compete for more than $4 million in awards.
The Google Science Fair is an online science competition open to students between the ages of 13 and 18 from anywhere in the world, working alone or in teams. This is a great opportunity for teenagers to explore ideas they're passionate about, learn about science, and maybe produce a world-changing idea.
The 2014 TISF brings together students and teachers in Taiwan and from around the world for seven days to compete and to experience exciting cultural exchanges. Students are billeted with a Taiwanese family for the week.
Every two years, the International Movement for Leisure Activities in Science and Technology (MILSET –Mouvement International pour le Loisir Scientifique et Technique) organizes a science fair in different countries for international participants.
The Lower Mainland and UBC has many extra-curricular science programs available to students.
