We had a very busy March month as we are getting ready for our Holy Cross School Science Fair (April 9th
) and Bison Regional Science Fair (April 10-11).
All students received feedback about their science fair projects from their teachers already. We are confident about their scientific and inquiry based skills. We would like to extend our invitation to grade 4-8 students to participate in the Bison Regional Science Fair. Here is a link for more information: https://secure.youthscience.ca/sfiab/bisonregionalsciencefair/login.php
OR you can google “Bison Regional Science Fair”, we are on the top list and from home page click to the participant registration. Please let me know ASAP if you have any questions/concerns or need any help in that.
Bison Regional Science Fair is an extended opportunity for grade 4-8 students to compete with other schools, win more medals, plaques, trophies and much more! Registration fee is $40 per student and please make cash/cheque payment to Holy Cross School. However, the Holy Cross School science fair gold medalists’ fee will be paid by sponsors. The students with the winning projects at the Bison Regional Science Fair will receive an all-expenses-paid trip to the Canada Wide Science Fair which will be held in Fredericton from May 12-19, 2019. This event gives participants the opportunity to compete for $1,000,000 in cash prizes, and special awards! Please note that Bison Regional Science Fair will not affect the students’ class marks.
