The EPSRSF is open to all local grade 7 to 12 students. The annual fair encourages students to undertake independent research in an area of science that interests them such as health or the environment. By promoting science and technology the EPSRSF involves students, teachers, community members, local businesses and service clubs and gives students the opportunity to explore hands-on science outside of the classroom. The top three students will attend the Canada Wide Science Fair to be held in Regina in May.
"This is the 35th anniversary of the EPSRSF. We are extremely grateful to Union Gas for the generous financial support," said George Stripe, chair, EPSRSF. "Union Gas is a major supporter of the fair which allows us to offer this educational opportunity to the students of East Parry Sound. On behalf of the students, I would like to thank Union Gas for its continued support, without which the fair would not be possible."
