Trustee Garry Thind checks out the Epic Bottle Rockets science project, presented by Don Christian Elementary students Peyton Slind and Melanie Curan.

The recent Surrey Schools Science & Innovation Fair brought exactly that to the table, as students from across the district showcased unique and inventive solutions to real-world problems through their exhibits.

The 53rd-annual district fair saw 105 projects by 145 Grade 4-8 students, including seven projects by 13 French Immersion students. Twenty-three elementary schools and six secondary schools competed at the fair, held at Kwantlen Polytechnic University's Surrey campus.

The judges awarded 94 gold medals, 47 silver and four bronze to the competitors. Some of the main themes of this year's projects included ideas to address medical and environmental issues, as well as the optional intergalactic theme of how humans can colonize Mars.

A handful of projects were selected to be presented at the March 11 Surrey Board of Education meeting:

  • Epic Bottle Rockets by Peyton Slind and Melanie Curran - Don Christian Elementary
  • How to Prevent Eye Problems by Kevin Wang and Jigishu Basra - SAIL
  • Decomposition of Starch-Based Plastic by Shelby Hack - Ocean Cliff Elementary
  • Mask It Away by Tavia Azad and Hafsa Sajid - SAIL (pictured below)
