Plan, Develop and Present Your Science Fair Project
Preparing for Science Fairs - Part 1 - Introduction
Common questions from students are:
- "Where do I start?"
- "How do I come up with an idea?"
- "How do I conduct an experiment?"
These questions and more are answered in this fun set of videos that takes a look inside the Canada Wide Science Fair through the eyes of students. Hosted by two award winning Nova Scotians from the 2007 Canada Wide Science Fair, Sheralynne Deveaux and Darren Rhodenhizer, the video features interviews with youth across Canada.

Team Canada-ISEF 2014
Team Canada-ISEF 2014 will represent this country at the Intel International Science & Engineering Fair (ISEF) in Los Angeles, California from May 11-16.
The Intel ISEF is the world's largest pre-college celebration of science that brings together over 1,500 students from 65 countries, regions, and territories to compete for over $4 million in awards, scholarships, tuition grants, internships, scientific field trips and 3 grand prizes, including a US$75,000 college scholarship.
Each year Canada sends a team of 18 finalists and the results have been spectacular - on average, 80% of Team Canada members have won awards. Each year, young Canadian scientists like you are proving they're world-class.
