REGISTERING FOR THE FAIR
Any student in grades 4 – 12 can enter the science fair. Registration is on a first-come, first-serve basis. When we have the maximum number of projects that we can accommodate in our space, we will no longer be able to accept new registrations.
There are three steps required to successfully get registered. Only students who complete all three steps will be able to participate in the fair.
The first two steps MUST be completed before the registration deadline noted above.

You will receive in return an email with full instructions on how to access your account and complete registration. It is done online. When you have finished the online registration, you must send in a permission form.
WARNING. Do NOT send us emails from an address of the form firstname.lastname@example.org if you are in the TVDSB in elementary school. Emails from this address will not reach us. Emails from us will not reach you.
