Science Fair Foundation of BC Launches 2021 BC/Yukon Virtual Science Fair

January | 2021

Vancouver, BC - The Science Fair Foundation of BC, in conjunction with regional science fair organizers, is pleased to announce the launch of the first BC/Yukon Virtual Science Fair for students in grade 4 to 12. 

"With gathering restrictions prohibiting most traditional science fairs, we wanted to ensure that young scientists still had the opportunity to present their projects and benefit from the mentorship that comes with the science fair program,” said Madeleine Guenette, Executive Director of the Science Fair Foundation of BC. 

The 2021 BC/Yukon Virtual Science Fair is now accepting registrations, with project submissions accepted from February 1 to March 5. The presentations and judging will take place between April 6 to 11, with winners announced at a final celebration April 14. 

Students from multiple regions who would normally host their own fair are invited to participate, including the Pacific Northwest, Fraser Valley, West Kootenay, South Fraser, Central Okanagan, Central Interior or southern Vancouver Island region. 

For those students in the Cariboo Mainline, East Kootenay, Greater Vancouver, Northern BC, Northern Vancouver Island or Yukon-Stikine, regional fairs are still running. Students in grades 4 to 6 who don’t qualify for their regional fair are welcome to join the BC/Yukon Virtual Science Fair this year.
