SCIENCE FAIR FOUNDATION BC ANNOUNCES SEMI-FINALISTS FOR FOURTH ANNUAL YOUTH INNOVATION SHOWCASE

Vancouver, BC - The Science Fair Foundation BC is pleased to announce this year’s semi-finalists for the Youth Innovation Showcase 2022 who will be moving forward and have a chance to win one of two $5,000 grand prizes; one per age category.  

A total of 20 projects, 10 from students ages 12-15 and 10 from students ages 16-19 have been chosen to move on to the next round of the Youth Innovation Showcase from over 60 registrants.

“Our goal with the Youth Innovation Showcase is to break down barriers and inspire youth by opening the doors for exploration of education and career opportunities,” said Madeleine Guenette, Executive Director of The Science Fair Foundation BC. 

The Youth Innovation Showcase encourages youth to explore creative ways to solve everyday challenges, and to see how theoretical solutions can become real-world change. These young innovators come face-to-face with industry and academic leaders to pitch their great new ideas and inventions, get feedback from experts in the field, and find out where a career in STEM can take them.
