Science Fair at the Pickering Central Library


Explore Your Inner Scientist!

Join us for a Science Fair Competition on March 4, 2017! (Grades 3 to 12)

Leading up to the competition, there will be five Science Fair Workshops that address a particular component of how to prepare for a science fair. We will cover: choosing a topic, researching the topic, conducting an experiment, and how to present findings to the judges through a written, visual, and oral presentation.

The Library will host a Science Fair at the conclusion of the workshops. The judging panel will be made up of Durham Region Scientists!
