During the morning, only students, chaperones, and judges will be allowed into the Exhibit Hall (gym). All participants, grades 4-12, will spend the full day at the Science Fair. The day will proceed as follows...

From 12:00 pm - 3:00 pm, Science Fair students will participate in a variety of science activities, including hands-on demonstrations, science puzzles and much more. Volunteers from the Let's Talk Science Program will be conducting experiments. Bricks 4 Kidz will be on-hand to demonstrate principles of engineering and architecture using LEGO® bricks. Participants can drop by at their leisure and try their hand at an experiment.

All students should expect to have their projects examined by 3 different judges, most of whom are research scientists, engineers and science students. In addition to the competition judges, there will be specialty prize judges visiting select projects throughout the day. There are many special prizes donated from local businesses, government, and community groups, and these judges will be looking for projects that they wish to reward with prize money.

There will also be the Science Fair Logo Design Competition. Everyone is invited to participate! Are you ready to be the best designer in PEI?

We look forward to seeing you at the Fair!!!
