For over 50 years the Peterborough Regional Science Fair has encouraged students to embrace and explore scientific thought and have fun doing it! Projects require all aspects of learning: inquiry, experimental design and execution, literacy, math and art to create the dynamic poster boards. Students take part in a friendly science competition, showing off their investigations.


Held annually at Trent University, our Fair brings together hundreds of students who showcase their experiments and compete for awards totalling $15 000, including the opportunity to compete at the Canada-Wide Science Fair and beyond.
