Edmonton Regional Science Fair

As part of our strategy to promote materials science in Edmonton and support the development of future material scientists we sponsor a Materials Science Award at the Edmonton Regional Science Fair. The recipient of this award is selected by members of our Executive, who take the time to go through all the projects submitted and select the one that best demonstrates aspects of materials selection and design or materials testing at any age from grades 4 -12. Previous winning projects range from testing the bonding strength of different wood glues (grade 4) to the materials selection and design of a new bullet proof vest (grade 12).
