Some of Niagara’s top young scientists will be putting their work on display at Brock University this weekend.
More than 175 students from across Niagara will be displaying their diverse research projects as part of the 56th annual Niagara Regional Science and Engineering Fair, a non-profit, charitable organization, which is sponsored by local businesses and dedicated to the encouragement of science in students within the Niagara region.
The two-day event in Brock’s Pond Inlet allows students in grades 5 through 12 to present their projects in English or French on a wide variety of topics, including sleep methods for kids with anxiety, innovating healthcare technology through mobile applications and examining whether 3D bioprinting can replace organ transplants.
Judging by local scientists, engineers and business professionals will take place on Saturday, March 24 from 8:30 a.m. until 4 p.m., while members of the community are invited to participate in the Fair’s Community Open house, running from 1 to 3 p.m. on Sunday, March 25.
The winners will be announced at an awards ceremony at St. Catharines Collegiate on Wednesday, March 28 from 7 to 9 p.m. The top-awarded students will go on to compete at the Canada-Wide Science Fair in Ottawa May 12 to 19.
