Vancouver students showcase their achievements at two district science fairs

Schools & Students

Vancouver District Science Fair 2018

The Vancouver District Science Fair (VDSF) showcases projects from students in Grades 5 to 12, and includes students from VSB secondary schools, elementary MACC students, IB students, French Immersion students and from VSB mini school programs.

In addition to presenting projects to judges, students also attend breakout sessions offered by Langara instructors. This year's theme was ‘Science in the News’ and each session highlighted a current hot topic -- virtual reality sidekicks, wearable technology, personalized medicine, personal genome data services, extreme weather and natural hazards. 

VDSF projects are evaluated by a team of judges that include industry professionals, graduate students, and post-secondary faculty. The top projects are selected to represent the district at the Greater Vancouver Regional Science Fair on April 12-14 at UBC.

Vancouver School Board Science Celebration

The VSB science celebration has been held for more than a decade offering a non-adjudicated math and science fair for students from elementary schools across the district. Students have the opportunity to display and highlight their skills and knowledge around math and science to their peers as well as the general public.

This year’s fair was held last Saturday and Sunday at Science World. The students not only get to display their knowledge but have the opportunity to see and learn from their peers. Participants also were able to take part in a workshop put on by Science World staff.
