Canada Wide Science Fair
The Canada Wide Science Fair is held in May in the week before the Victoria Day Holiday. About 450 finalists from the 102 Regional Science Fairs from Victoria BC to St Johns Newfoundland will attend. It is a life changing experience for some students, and friendships formed can last a lifetime. The Fair is held in a different city each year.

Sanofi Biogenius Canada
Sanofi Biogenius Canada (SBC) is a national, biotechnology-focused science competition that exposes high school and CEGEP students to career possibilities and reveals the breadth of endeavour that makes up the bio-economy.
In London, we encourage students competing in the SBC to enter the Thames Valley Science & Engineering Fair as well. The Science Fair is a great warm up for the SBC, which is usually held a few weeks after the science fair.

The Knowledge Society
The Knowledge Society (TKS) is designed to prepare young people (ages 13-17) to become leaders in their industries. The learning space is optimized for creativity, collaboration, and ambition. TKS encourages students to take risks and think big.
The world is changing faster than ever. Advancements in technology are enabling a proliferation of innovation, which has a strong impact on the way we live. New careers are being created, while other careers are being automated. To successfully impact tomorrow’s world, young people need to expose themselves to the latest trends, network with like-minded individuals, and understand how to adapt to rapid change.
We encourage all students who have the ability to thrive in a creative and fast paced environment to apply.
WISE – Free University Course
The WISE program at Western University allows Grade 11 and 12 students to take a university course for free while they are still in high school.
Students must have a strong average each year in high school, have completed 22 credits and be a full time student to be eligible. Students can choose which course they would like to take provided they have the prerequisites.
They are able to enroll in a day, evening or distance studies course.
Applications will be available May 1 and are due by June 30.
“I just had my last class yesterday and I wanted to thank you so much for introducing me to the WISE program. It was a great preparation for University and I’m much more confident about next year’s courses and how to manage them. It was a lot of work, but it was also very interesting and I’m positive it will benefit my University experience. The future doesn’t seem quite so scary anymore.” – Hannah Badcock, Banting Secondary School Student, WISE participant 2011/12
