School Tours

Winnipeg will experience a burst of innovation, creativity, and curiosity May 9-17, 2009, when 500 of Canada’s brightest science students descend on the prairie capital for the 48th annual Canada-Wide Science Fair (CWSF). It’s a homecoming of sorts, as Canada’s largest extracurricular youth-science event is returning to Winnipeg for the first time since the national fair was last held here in 1988.

During the week, students in Grades 7 to 12 from all provinces and territories will showcase their projects for judges, local schoolchildren and the public.  The students not only compete for close to $1 million in scholarships and grants, but they also foster friendships with fellow students from across the country.

On Friday morning of May 15, schools will be able to visit the students and their projects at a special viewing at the University of Manitoba’s Max Bell Centre
