“The Canada Wide Science Fair is an unbelievable experience! I loved meeting new and inspiring people, participating in all sorts of activities such as chess, GeoGuessr, virtual tours, and more. Getting involved in a stem fair is more than just you and your project. It’s a learning experience that inspires you to continue your research and find out more about anything stem related. In the long run, it’s well worth the effort, and for me, participating in a CWSF is a memory that I will treasure for the rest of my life.” — Davin MacAskill, Team NB ( Junior Bronze Award, CWSF 2021)

Francophone School Districts qualify for:

  • L’Expo-Sciences des Districts Francophones du Nouveau Brunswick


The goal of science fair participation is to empower youth to get hands-on and active in science by researching and exploring questions related to problems that interest them.

Your support makes the New Brunswick Science Fairs possible:

Each year Science East runs the New Brunswick Science Fair program through raising public and private funds.

These proceeds of sponsorship and donation to the event support the expense  of coordinating the provincial fairs, organizing the campus enrichment activities, training and organizing tour leaders, enlisting and vetting judges, as well travel costs and accommodation for the Team New Brunswick’s annual journey to the national Canada-Wide Science Fair.

Sponsorship Benefits NB Provincial Science Fairs 2020

Making a charitable donation to support youth science research is convenient and secure.
