Lethbridge: Lethbridge will play host to the Canada-Wide Science Fair, this
Almost 500 student finalists from grades 7 through 12 will take
part in the event. They were selected from more than 100 regional competitions
across the country.
"They come through, typically, a school science fair program and the best
of the schools go onto a regional science fair and then the best of those
participants from the regional science fair are sent by their regions to
Lethbridge. So, basically by the time they get to the Canada-Wide Science Fair,
it really is down to some of the significant projects and exciting research
that's happening at the high school level." says Co-Chair, Mark Bellamy.
Over 330 judges will interview the finalists to select the most
outstanding projects. There's nearly 1-million dollars in cash, prizes and
scholarships up for grabs during the event.
There will be free public viewing sessions throughout the week. The first
opportunity is Sunday afternoon from 2 to 4:30 in the 1st Choice Savings
