We are now accepting applications for 2012- 2013 SBCC competition. Applications must be received by Monday October 29, 2012 – No extensions will be given.
Please note that due to the current labour issues in the public school board, Eastern Ontario will accept applications from public board students with only the principal and parent signatures.
Students are encouraged to submit their projects and try to identify a mentor that they would like to work with. For more information on developing a proposal or ideas please review the Students and Teachers tab. Be sure to click on the interesting links section for more project ideas.
Mentors can be found by searching the University, College and National Research Council Canada sites to find who’s doing research in your area of interest. These sites are also great for exploring some of the research going on in the region to help you think of a project idea. If you are having problems, be sure to ask me, the regional coordinator, and I will try to help you find a mentor to work with.
Students will begin their research projects as soon as they are approved. This year, in accordance with international rules, only one student per project is allowed. You must keep a lab book (be sure to review the format requirements).
This year’s regional competition will be the week of March 25-29, 2013 at the Canada Science and Technology Museum.
Please make sure you review all of the competition rules under the Student & Teachers tab.
Most of all, be sure to work hard and ENJOY SCIENCE!
I hope to hear from you soon,
