Each year a British Columbia team of two students and one educator are invited to attend the TISF at the National Taiwan Science Center (NTSC) in Taipei, Taiwan. Participation by a BC team is a legacy of the Canada-Wide Science Fair in 1991 which was hosted in Vancouver by a committee of the Science Fair Foundation of BC.
The TISF brings together students and teachers in Taiwan from around the world for seven days to compete and to experience exciting cultural exchanges. Science Fair Foundation provides a cash award to each of the three BC team members that goes toward some of their airfare costs.
