We are a volunteer organisation of physics teachers of BC (from high schools, colleges, institutes and universities) who work tirelessly to improve how physics is taught in our province. We were founded in 1984 and we are always looking for enthusiastic physics teachers who want to get involved. We love and live physics and we enjoy being BCAPT members.

West Kootenay Regional Science Fair

Science Fair Foundation BC is partnering with the West Kootenay Regional Science Fair for 2023 to bring back an in-person fair for every student in the West Kootenay region. At the same time, we want to invite the entire Kootenay community to join us in STEM activities and exploration. We're looking for local business and community leaders to help us make this a great event where West Kootenay youth, families and members of the whole community and learn about science.

We would be grateful for any industry or community partners in the West Kootenay area who are able to help us with any of the following:

  • volunteers to help plan and organize the West Kootenay Regional Science Fair
  • volunteers to help on the day of the fair (judges, general duties)
  • financial support
  • in-kind support
  • marketing support (help us spread the word!)

About the West Kootenay Regional Science Fair

For years, the West Kootenay Regional Science Fair has been connecting industry professionals from around the Kootenays with the next generation of STEM pioneers and enthusiasts. Our event is a chance for youth to show off theri STEM projects and ideas, and for local industry to get a first glimpse at the future workforce.

Any student between grade 4 and grade 12 is invited to submit a project to the fair. All projects are reviewed by a team of volunteer judges who ask questions and discuss the project with the student during the interview process. Awards and prizes are generously donated by local and provincial sponsors and winners are announced at the closing ceremony. The highest-scoring projects for the fair advance to the Canada-Wide Science Fair in May.
