SES has established a special award in the Greater Vancouver Regional Science Fair (GVRSF). The award is for $200 per year, based on a generous donation by a member. It is available to students from Grade 7 to Grade 12 in Sea to Sky School District 48, for an outstanding project that investigates topics of wildlife and habitat preservation and sustainability of natural ecosystems in the Sea to Sky region. If a suitable project cannot be selected, the award will be deferred to the next year.
Registration for the 2019 fair closes on March 6, so it is probably too late for students to be ready to enter this year. Anyone who is interested in learning more about the fair could make a good start by attending the public viewing of this year’s projects at UBC’s AMS Student Nest, Saturday April 6, 9:00 am til noon.
