Welcome to the Bison Regional Science Fair !

Dear Friends in Science

Wait is over! We understand that due to Covid-19, it was heartbreaking for us to cancel our Bison Regional Science Fair. Our budding students never gave up and encouraged us to organize a virtual science fair. Youth Science Canada is organizing the YSC Online STEM Fair, a showcase for science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) projects that reflect the curiosity and creativity of Canadian youth.

Developed by engineering.com, the site will feature STEM projects submitted by students in grades 7-12 looking to showcase their ideas and discoveries.

 Here is a timeline of key dates and an overview for your reference:

•Monday, May 4 - Open for project & STEM Expo entry

• Tuesday, May 19 - Open for public, home learning & judging

• Thursday, May 21 - Region judging deadline

•  Wednesday, May 27 - YSC & Sponsor judging deadline

•   Friday, May 29 - Ribbons awarded & announced

When the site goes live on May 4, the URL will be: https://makeprojects.com/ysc. Please follow the instructions as provided in the link. Ribbons will appear on the projects May 29.

 

We are hopeful that regions will promote the YSC Online STEM Fair to grade 7-12 students, parents, teachers and others in your network. In the meantime, please be sure to follow, like and share YSC on Facebook (@ysc.sjc), Twitter (@ysc_sjc and @sjc_ysc), and@ bisonfair , and YouTube (/YouthScienceCanada).

 

Finally, I want to thank the incredible BRSF and YSC  team of staff and national volunteers who have made the YSC Online STEM Fair possible. Their work over the past month has demonstrated once again the dedication and passion for youth and STEM projects within this organization.

 

We encourage all our BRSF and all Manitoba students to explore this opportunity when the site is officially launched.
