Ontario has a rich history of supporting regional youth science fairs. Schools around the province hold annual science fairs, attracting an estimated 25,000 Ontario youth. The top projects from these school fairs go on to compete at the regional level in one of the 28 Regional Science Fairs in Ontario.
Youth Science Ontario provides support to the Regional Science Fair system in Ontario through a range of programs and supports for youth and community volunteers. This support includes:
Youth Science Ontario also supports the start-up of new science fairs in Ontario at the local and regional level. If your community is interested in bringing a science fair to young scientists in your schools or region, please contact our Science Fair Liaison, Jacqueline Hsi at email@example.com, to discuss how Youth Science Ontario can help.
If you are a young scientist or the parent or teacher of a young scientist in Ontario, you can also find information on these pages to connect you with your regional science fair and to help with completing a science fair project.
