Students, if you are thinking about entering into next year’s science fair, please visit the Vancouver Island Regional Science Fair website. On the site, you will find not only judging criteria, regulations, awards, important dates, but also links to previous Science Fair Projects and ideas. The deadline for entering projects is in March of each year, but it does take time to come up and develop a good project.
If you would like to enter into next year’s science fair, please contact Mr. Newell in Room 227. All of the Mount Douglas Science teachers are on board to work with you and would be more than pleased to help out.
