The Quest for Science Fair Champions Program is an initiative of the Science Fair Foundation of BC (SFF BC) that contributes to the excellence of teaching and learning. This is in response to the need to recruit teacher champions and provide training tools to enable educators to incorporate science fair activities into the classroom.
Smarter Science is the training tool developed by Youth Science Canada (YSC). It is a Canadian framework for teaching and learning science process skills and for developing the skills of inquiry, creativity, and innovation in a meaningful manner for students from Grade K-12. SFF BC is collaborating with YSC on the presentation of the Smarter Science program in BC. For more information, contact firstname.lastname@example.org

Two BC Educators Honoured
Youth Science Canada recognizes the work of dedicated volunteers across Canada each year through its Distinguished Service Award. This year they have honoured two British Columbia educators: Caedmon Nash of Burnaby and Roswitha Marx of Victoria. They were recognized for their long-term service to and leadership in regional and national Science Fair activities.
