Surrey students showcase their discoveries

​Student scientists are taking the stage in Surrey this week.

More than 120 students in grades 7 to 12 - including 31 students from the Surrey School District - will converge on Kwantlen Polytechnic University’s Surrey campus April 11 and 12 for the seventh annual South Fraser Regional Science Fair.

Students will showcase projects and defend their findings to more than 40 judges in hopes of gaining recognition from the science community for their work.sciencefairnewsitem.jpg

Students will showcase projects in the fields of biotechnology, earth and environmental science, engineering, health and life science and physical and mathematical sciences.

Awards will include trophies, scholarships, travel awards and cash prizes valued at more than $15,000. Students will also be selected for eight coveted spots to the 2013 Canada-Wide Science Fair in Lethbridge, Alberta in May.

The public and media are encouraged to visit the fair during public viewing on Friday, April 12 from 4:30 to 6 p.m. to see these projects firsthand and ask questions. Science fair organizers say public involvement creates a more meaningful arena for students to share their discoveries. Admission is free.

The SFRSF is jointly sponsored by Simon Fraser University, Kwantlen Polytechnic University, Surrey Schools, the Delta School District and the Science Fair Foundation of British Columbia.
