These resources are meant to support the incredible volunteers who plan, organize and facilitate regional science fairs across BC and the Yukon each year. Many of the resources here have been generously shared by regional volunteers and we will continue to update this page as new resources are shared or developed.

If you have resources to contribute, or are looking for something specific, please contact info@sciencefairs.ca

Speaker Sessions

Each month, Science Fair Foundation BC hosts a virtual meeting for regional science fair organizers where we discuss plans for the upcoming science fair season, share ideas, and learn from each other. This year, we've gathered experts and science fair veterans to speak at our meetings about some of the fundamental components of running a regional science fair. These Speaker Sessions will run from September 2022 to June 2023 and are timed to support science fair committees in planning and implementing an April science fair.

Interested in attending the next meeting? Reach out to info@sciencefairs.ca for the meeting link.
