Young CSCNO scientists to be showcased at science fair

March 5, 2019

Some 30 grade 7 and 8 students from four Conseil scolaire catholique du Nouvel-Ontario (CSCNO) elementary schools will gather in the École St-Denis gymnasium (1200 Ramsey View Court, Sudbury) on Thursday, March 7, from 9 a.m. to 2:30 p.m., to take part in the CSCNO Science Fair. Members of the media are invited to meet the young scientists.

Under the guidance of their teacher, these CSCNO students were able to work on the scientific enquiry process and focus on various areas of science. The projects will be divided in the following categories: life science, physical science and engineering. In groups of two, students will have the opportunity to present their research project to a panel of judges as well as share their knowledge and their scientific findings with family and friends.

The top science fair projects will move on to the Sudbury Regional Science Fair being held at Laurentian University in April. Certain students may possibly be selected for the Canada-Wide Science Fair in Fredericton, New Brunswick.

The Conseil scolaire catholique du Nouvel-Ontario offers a French Catholic Educational Program that is widely recognized for its excellence. The CSCNO provides a quality learning environment and academic program that runs from early childhood to adult education, with some 7,000 students enrolled in 27 elementary and 10 secondary schools.
