Winnipeg School Division held its 47th Annual Science Festival on April 5 at the Rady Faculty of Health Sciences, University of Manitoba.
Over 200 diverse projects from four grade levels were on display for this year's event. Students from Elementary (Grades 4 to 6), Junior High (Grades 7 to 8), Intermediate (Grades 9 to 10) and Senior (Grades 11 to 12) participate in the annual exhibition.
Project entries cover a variety of categories ranging from Biology, Chemistry and Physics to Sustainable Development and Innovation, Environmental Science, Engineering, and Consumer Science. This year, there were nine major categories in all. Projects may take on the form of a research project, an innovation, or a scientific experiment.
"The Winnipeg Schools' Science Festival is enthusiastically supported by teachers, parents, mentors and administrators who recognize the importance of encouraging young minds to ask questions and to develop action plans to address these questions," said Mary Lucy Rocha St. Lawrence, WSD Science Consultant. "It's called Scientific Inquiry and the Design Process, and every year we see amazing ideas and the results of this process."
The awards ceremony was held on April 8 at 9:30 a.m. in the Frederic Gaspar Theatre at the University of Manitoba, 727 McDermot Avenue. Near the end of the ceremonies, organizers announced the three students who will be representing Winnipeg School Division at the Canada Wide Science Fair taking place in Regina, Saskatchewan on May 14-20, 2017.
