Welcome! This site is your source for information on the PEI Science Fair. The pages give details on the fair for participants, judges, as well as contact information for the organizing committee. Up to five grade 7-12 students will have a chance to compete with the brightest young science students at the Canada Wide Science Fair in May. With a little innovation, hard work, and good luck, you could be one of the people representing PEI! Stay tuned for the winning projects!

2021 PEI Science Fair will be virtual

The PEI Science Fair Committee recognizes that this school year has been different. This year's provincial science fair will also be different, as it will be a virtual fair. The organizers want to give you, the young scientists of PEI, a chance to show off your science project, to let the world know what you care about, what concerns you, and what problems you wish to solve. Even though the fair will be virtual this year, we look forward to seeing and hearing about your successes in science. We encourage you to take your project to the next level by letting your science teacher know you are interested in entering the PEI Science Fair and showing the world your interests and talents. Teachers have been sent information on how students can enter the fair this year. We hope you decide to participate... and if you do, read on for more details.

The 2021 PEI Science Fair will be a virtual fair open to students in grades 7 through 12. Students will be entering from their school by uploading their project to an online platform via a link that is being sent to teachers in early February. Students and teachers can view sample project boards at https://projectboard.world/ysc  to understand what an entry will look like.

Student entries will include the following:

  • Video – 1 minute introduction to project
  • Project board in sections (eg. why, what, findings, what’s next, references) which could include pictures
  • Brief summary of the project (up to 150 words)

The deadline for project submission is Wednesday, March 31. Judging of projects will happen over a period from April 1 - 9, with the winners announced on April 12.

We will be recognizing the top projects in the junior (grades 7, 8), intermediate (grades 9, 10), and senior (grades 11, 12) divisions and also choosing the top projects who will compete at the Canada Wide Science Fair being held virtually in May.

Best of luck!
