Toronto Science Fair (TSF) is the organization responsible for the Regional Science Fair for Toronto. TSF seeks to offer a top quality science fair experience for all students in Toronto from Kindergarten to Grade 12. Some of the winners there will be able to go on to compete in the Canada-Wide Science Fair in May.
Are you a student in Grade 7 to 12 living in Toronto? Did you invest a lot of time and thought into doing a science fair project this year? Youth Science Canada (YSC) is giving you a chance to share your project with students from across Canada.
YSC has developed an On-Line Science Fair. You have the opportunity to upload your science fair project, following the template provided on the YSC website. The site opens on May 4, 2020 and students have until Monday, May 18th, 2020 to post a 1-minute video, pictures, text and graphics to explain all the important aspects of their investigations. This fair is open to ALL students in Grades 7-12 not just those who were registered in a Regional Science Fair.
From May 19th to May 27th , others will be able to visit the science fair site and study the projects. There will be some on-line judging of the projects and virtual ribbons will be awarded to some projects.

The Toronto Science Fair committee hopes that many Toronto students will take advantage of this opportunity to showcase their work in science. Join other students across Canada and show everyone what you discovered in your science project this year.
Because of concerns around the spread of the COVID-19 virus, the Toronto Science Fair which was to be held at the University of Toronto Scarborough on April 3-4, 2020 has been cancelled. With the closure of Ontario’s publicly funded schools until April 5th and the recent cancellation of all face-to-face classes at the University of Toronto as well as at Centennial College where workshops were to be held, it is clear that we are unable to hold our event this year.
The Toronto Science Fair acknowledges the time and effort students have put into their projects, as well as the many hours of support provided by both teachers and parents. It is most regrettable that students will be unable to share their findings with their peers and the wider community. However, the decision to cancel the fair was made to protect the health and safety of students, volunteers and visitors.
