Durham Regional Science Fair to be held on campus

OSHAWA, Ont. - On Saturday, April 23, the Durham Regional Science Fair 2005 will triumphantly return as the University of Ontario Institute of Technology (UOIT) hosts this exciting event from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. in the Science building of the Oshawa campus.

All interested students from Grades 4 to 12 were invited to attend, as this fair showcases scientific talents and recognizes excellence in the physical, biological and computing sciences. During the day, students will have an opportunity to interact with UOIT professors and receive feedback on their projects.

This event is particularly exciting because the winners go on to represent the region at the national level from May 15 to 22 during the Canada Wide Science Fair in Vancouver, British Columbia.

While at the event, spectators are also invited to attend the Faculty of Science Open House from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Visitors have a chance to tour the new labs (with demonstrations in biology, chemistry and physics); take a look into one of our newest research facilities; learn more about available programs at UOIT; and speak with faculty and students.
