Posted on 05/06/2024

In early April, elementary and secondary students from across Simcoe County represented their schools at the Simcoe County Regional Science and Technology Fair (SCRSTF), an annual event celebrating excellence in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM).

This year’s fair included 176 projects from 28 schools separated into five categories: Animal and Plant Sciences, Computer Science and Engineering, Earth and Environmental Sciences, Human and Health Sciences, and Physical and Mathematical Sciences.

Projects are recognized with awards in divisional and special award categories. In the divisional awards categories, students from Simcoe County District School Board (SCDSB) schools received:

  • 21 honourable mentions
  • 17 bronze medals
  • 8 silver medals
  • 10 gold medals

SCDSB students were also recognized with 30 special awards, which are sponsored by community organizations and other SCRSTF partners.

Seven projects from students in Grades 7 to 12 were also selected to move forward to represent Simcoe County at the Canada-Wide Science Fair from May 25 to June 1. The following SCDSB students are the members of Team Simcoe at this year’s national fair in Ottawa:
