Why Should You?

If you’re in grades 7-12, we want you to use your curiosity and creativity to make the world a better place through STEM.

Think about the challenges facing Canada and the world: Discovery, Energy, Environment, Health, Information, Innovation, and Resources. Start with whatever you love (there’s STEM in everything); use the skills you’re good at, and do something you care about.

Canadian scientists, engineers, innovators, entrepreneurs – and even astronauts – say that their science project and science fair experience changed their lives. Where will your project take you?
