2020 Cancelled

Hi everyone, I am sure some of you saw this coming but due to the Covid-19 virus the Canada Wide Science Fair is cancelled and we have also made the difficult call with the support of the AVRCE, to cancel the Annapolis Valley Regional Science Fair this year. We hope that some of you will be able to save your projects so that you might use them as is next year or even improve them if you have the extra time to work on them.

We look forward to seeing all of your hard work and smiling faces next year! Keep expanding your horizons and learning about Science while you are home!
