Eastern Newfoundland Science and Technology Fair

G e n e r a l   I n f o r m a t i o n
The "Eastern Newfoundland Science and Technology Fair" is an annual event that brings together over 200 of the best and brightest Grade 7 to 12 Science students in Eastern Newfoundland. To qualify for the fair, students will have already proven their skill in their school science fair.

The fair is organized by members of the Eastern Newfoundland Science Fairs Council. Members of the council are all volunteers and include teachers, university researchers and instructors, as well as other members of the local community.

This year the fair will be held at:

Holy Heart of Mary
55 Bonaventure Ave, St John's

Fair dates for 2015
April 17th & 18th


All fair participants will be bussed to the tours. Students must sign up for the tours when they register.

Lunch will depend on the location of your tour. For MUN tours, lunch can be purchased at the Student Centre; for College of North Atlantic tours, lunch will be provided; for Ocean Science Center tours, students must bring their own lunch.

Parking is NOT available at Holy heart on Friday, however it is free at nearby Bonaventure’s College and the Basilica; on Saturday free parking is available at Holy Heart.

Teachers who accompany students to the fair on Friday will be expected to chaperone the students on the tours (including going on the buses with the students to and from the tour locations.)

Registration is now open for the 2015 fair.

When registering, students should only register once per project. The registration fee is $20.00 per student. We ask that a cheque be provided from the school for the total registration costs of all students attending from that school. We cannot accept individual payments from students.
Cheques should be made payable to: "
Eastern Newfoundland Science Fairs Council".
