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.
