More than 210 young scientists in grades 4-12 from 27 Island schools will present science projects at the 2019 P.E.I. Science Fair to be held Wednesday at the Chi-Wan Young Sports Centre at UPEI.
These young scientists will share their interests, talents and creativity with more than 80 volunteer judges.
Projects this year include innovations in renewable energy, biodegradable materials, climate adaptation, agriculture, robotics and health and well-being.
More than $15,000 in prizes and awards will be handed out by 45 community partner organizations that annually support the fair.
Five students from grades 7-12 will be selected to represent the Island at the 2019 Canada Wide Science Fair in Fredericton in May where more than $1 million in prizes and scholarships will be awarded.
The science fair program in P.E.I., at the local school and provincial levels, is a strong community education partnership with hundreds of volunteers who give of their time and energy to support learning and learners.
The public is invited to come by and speak with these students from 3-4 p.m. The awards ceremony is 4-4:45 p.m.
