Senior School Science Fair

Last week, our Senior Students took over the Study Hall for this year’s Science Fair. The students had to choose a scientific question to answer, conduct research to formulate their hypothesis, and then design an experiment to report on. After weeks of hard work, they presented their results.

From evaluating ultrasound gels, to the reliability of eyewitness testimonies, our students presented over 55 projects to their classmates, parents, and more than 30 judges from professional and amateur scientists who shared their time and expertise.
 
Based on the judges' scores, seven winners for each of the boys and girls have been selected to move on to the Halifax Sci-Tech Expo (regional science fair) at Saint Mary's University in April. At the conclusion of this event, six presenters will be selected to join the National team.
