What's the scoop? 

The top grades 7-12 projects from the Western Manitoba Science Fair have moved on to represent Western Manitoba at the Canada Wide Science Fair in Ottawa, ON from May 26-31, 2024 at Carleton University. The Canada Wide Science Fair is the largest youth oriented STEM event in Canada, and Ottawa welcomed 400 brilliant young minds this week from across the country, giving finalists an opportunity to compete for cash prizes, scholarships, and special awards that may very well shape their futures. In addition, they have participated in a variety of STEM based activities and workshops, as well as had the opportunity to explore the area and get up close and personal with the many cultural, social, scientific, and other activities that the Ottawa area has to offer.
