Connecting With Schools

Do you or your class need some ideas about how to get your project started? How about starting a science fair club? Trent University teacher's college students are here to help with junior, intermediate and senior students. They are science fair veterans, have expertise in environmental issues and they are training to become chemistry, biology or physics teachers. Take this opportunity to challenge yourself to develop a project.

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.
