United Counties Science Fair
Eastern Ontario Regional Science Fair for Stormont, Dundas and Glengarry Counties and Akwesasne
Four students represented our region at the 2017 Canada-Wide Science Fair in Regina, Saskatchewan from May 14-21.
The regional team members are: Emytt Fetterly from Seaway District High School with his project “How Fast is Fast Acting Pain Reliever?”, Cullen St. Clair from Char-Lan District High School and his project “Back On Traction”, and Ève Tremblay and Mégan Tremblay-Doyle from école secondaire publique l’Héritage with their project “La Vie en Vert”.
They were accompanied by team chaperone and committee representative Mike O’Neil for a week of competition, exploration, and networking with 500 other like-minded science students from across Canada, along with students from Mexico and Turkey.
Students from grades 6-12 participate with projects in the fair, and elementary students create science-themed posters for display in our "Science on the Wall" section every year.
Choose a topic and design an experiment or study. Enter in your school fair (if applicable).
Projects involving testing on animals or humans require special arrangements.
You must contact Jason Marshall at 343-370-8537 or email@example.com. You will also need to carefully review and complete certain forms (pink) that will be included with your registration packet.
You will need to meet your school’s entrance requirements. See your teacher for details.
Learn how to enter and prepare your students for your local and regional science fairs!
Many schools assign Science Fair as a class project. For more information on how this could work for you, refer to the Scientific Inquiry continuum (elementary) or to the Scientific Investigation Skills strand (secondary) in the Ontario Curriculum Document.
Some schools run a science fair and the winners move on to our Regional Fair. In other cases, students complete projects independently and request teacher assistance with the registration process.
Any student (grade 6-12) whose project you deem is worthy of advancing beyond the school level. Any student attending school and/or residing in SD&G may register for the Fair.
Our judges are volunteers educators and professionals from the region, and dedicate their time to make each year a success!
If you’re interested in judging for us, and have never judged before, then send a short email to firstname.lastname@example.org briefly outlining your experience and interest. We’re always on the lookout for local and bilingual judges for our projects.
The Cornwall section of the Chemical Institute of Canada started the United Counties Science Fair (UCSF) in 1976. Today, the UCSF committee is comprised of about 10 dedicated volunteers who meet monthly from September to June. We welcome anyone with an interest in science and education.
The UCSF is also composed of about 70 judges. These experts chat with students while judging, and can provide valuable information on the topic, as well as related careers.
