Science Fairs in British Columbia are built on an extensive infrastructure that enables students across the province to progress level-by-level through classroom, school, district, regional, national, and international events. The infrastructure is comprised of thousands of people and numerous organizations, most of them volunteers. This, along with the funding and program support of numerous sponsors has enabled the Foundation to pursue its support of science and technology education. We support science education through supporting the classroom teacher & thus the students.
