Bring these with you between Noon and 6:00 PM:
Entrants go to their projects and prepare for judging.
All students will be judged 3 to 5 times. Show them why your project is the most interesting, challenging, important, and amazing they've ever seen. Blow their minds!
You take a break while the judges feedback will be collected and analysed to produce a list of finalists in our many categories. There will be plenty to do on site and a food service, so please don't plan to leave for lunch. We have a Science Lab full of interactive exhibits, and 3 engaging Lunch Time Speakers starting at 11:45 AM on the stage. We cannot release students until the end of the day.
Students go back to their projects. Those projects selected for another round of judging will be visited one or more times in the afternoon by different judging teams.
Job well done! Judging will be finished by 3:30 PM and students can go home for the day. Leave your projects for public viewing on Saturday.
We expect that participants come for the Saturday public viewing, medals, and awards ceremony. Awards are presented by their sponsors directly to the winners so it is imperative that students be there to accept the award in person. If a participant absolutely cannot be there on Saturday then arrange with your school coordinator so that someone can accept medals and awards on your behalf.
Find your project and set up for the public viewing.
Present your project to the other parents and general public. Awards with a monetary value of less than $250 are presented at projects throughout the morning.
Be at your project to receive medals.
Everyone is invited to the stage area for the awards ceremony and to learn who was selected for the Canada-Wide Science Fair.
Great Job! Pack up the projects and begin preparation for next year's entry.
Right after the awards ceremony there will be a quick meeting with the Canada-Wide Science Fair team.
The Science Fair is held in the Olympic Oval at the University of Calgary.
Please enter through the EAST door of the Olympic Oval located near the large RED PAPER-CLIP Sculpture. Follow the SIGNS.
