About Expo

Mission Statement

We develop scientists that are able to indentify a problem, analyse information, find solutions and communicate findings effectively.

What is Expo?

Expo for Young Scientists is an Exposition, or science fair, where learners have a chance to show others their projects about their own scientific investigations. At Expo, learners can discuss their work with judges, learners from other schools and other interested people. An important aspect of Expo is that other learners see the exhibitor's work. The prizes and prestige are only one consideration. By participating in Expo learners will increase their awareness of the wonders of Science, add to their knowledge and broaden their scientific horizons.

Expo has categories for Grades 6 & 7, Grades 8 & 9 and Grades 10, 11 & 12. Learners can enter their own individual projects, or two learners can work together and enter a group project. No more than two learners will be able to enter at Regional or National finals. Expo has 24 different categories and a project can be entered in one of them.

Why would I want to participate in Expo?

How do I enter Expo?

A project must be entered into a Regional Expo, at which projects from Grade 6 to Grade 12 will be selected for participation at Expo National Finals.

Interested learners and teachers should contact the Regional Science Fair Director.

Entry forms should be filled in correctly and projects must be entered in the correct category. A learner may enter only one project in on region in one year.
