The Peterborough Regional Science Fair is one of several science fairs that run across Canada. We serve schools in the Peterborough region, including the Kawartha-Pine Ridge District School Board, the Peterborough Victoria Northumberland and Clarington Catholic DSB, and the Trillium Lakelands DSB, along with several private schools and home-schooled students.

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.
