| News

Future scientists and innovators will once again exhibit their skills and knowledge Thursday, April 7, bringing the best of PEI school science to the 30th Annual PEI Science Fair in Charlottetown.

The PEI Science Fair draws students from across the Island, all eager to present their projects, experiments and innovations to judges and the public. Up to 240 projects will be on display throughout the main gymnasium floor of the UPEI Sports Centre.

Science Fair judges will be looking for originality, creativity, and most importantly, scientific thought. The PEI Science Fair awards numerous prizes donated by its many sponsors. Selected projects from the intermediate and senior divisions will be entered in the nationwide competition to be held May 15 to 22, 2005 in Vancouver, British Columbia.

The PEI Science Fair is sponsored by the University of Prince Edward Island (UPEI), PEI Department of Education, Development and Technology PEI, the PEI School Boards and the PEI Association of Professional Engineers as well as its many award sponsors. Local Government dignitaries, as well as chief officers from our sponsors will visit the Fair during the day.

The event is the volunteer effort of hundreds of people including teachers, parents, students, judges, mentors, the organizing committee members and sponsors. The Fair will be open to the public at 11 a.m. The Awards Ceremony will begin in the gymnasium at 4:00 p.m.
