Bell Science and Technology Fair 2010 at Concordia University

Bell Montreal Regional Science and Technology Fair 2010 at Concordia University

Concordia University will be the hub of even more youthful scientific activity than usual as high school and Cegep students from around Montreal and beyond gather for Bell Montreal Regional Science and Technology Fair (MRSTF) 2010 between March 21 and 23. This is the first year Concordia will be hosting the Montreal Regional Science and Technology Fair, now in its golden anniversary (50) year.

A record breaking number of students are expected to participate in this year’s edition of the science fair. The students come from more than 40 schools across the island of Montreal and from communities in the Laurentians, Laval, and Montreal’s North and South Shore. More than 200 projects have been submitted to the competition. They deal with topics ranging from biotechnology through earth sciences. These projects will be displayed in the vast atrium of Concordia’s Engineering and Visual Arts building (1515 Sainte-Catherine Street West) and in the John Molson School of Business (1450 Guy Street).

“For this year’s competition, the students have been charged with elaborating one of two types of projects, with a focus on: experimentation or design,” says Louise Dandurand, Vice-President, Research and Graduate Studies at Concordia. “The panel will be judging according to scientific merit but also the quality of the participants’ written, oral and visual presentations based on evidence presented in their booths.”

More than 200 judges from academia and industry will judge the entries. Prizes for this year’s winning entries include close to one hundred cash prizes. Ten winners will also be awarded an entrance scholarship to Concordia University (valued at $2,500 each). Judging takes place on the Monday with the winners announced on Tuesday evening.

The opening ceremony of the Bell MRSTF 2010 will be held in the presence of keynote speaker Marc Garneau, former astronaut with the Canadian Space Agency and now Member of Parliament for the riding of Westmount-Ville-Marie.

Opening Ceremony - Sunday, March 21 at 1pm
1455 de Maisonneuve W. – room H 110
