FAIR DAY 2020
Driving & Parking
The Peterborough Regional Science Fair is held at Trent University, in the north east corner of Peterborough.
The map displays some key locations:
Science fair participants can park for free in Lot Q (yellow marker).
Proceed to the Science Complex loading dock entrance (red marker) to drop off your project before you park, then proceed to the welcome desk for the directions to your room.
We encourage the use of public transportation where possible. Trent University is serviced by Peterborough Transit via two routes, the George North and the Trent University Express (latter is faster). Please visit Peterborough Transit's Routes and Schedules web page for information on the routes and schedules of these lines.
Project Room Assignment
Before you arrive please check your assigned room number for your project (click link). It will be posted approximately one week before the fair.
Security & Safety
All participants are responsible for the security of their projects. If, at any time, you have questions or concerns during the fair, please approach one of our volunteers, including the room monitors, to let us know.
If you have signed the signature page, you have given permission for a science fair representative to take a picture of you and your project.
