Our Mission Statement
The mission of the Quinte Regional Science and Technology fair is to encourage, foster enthusiasm, develop self-confidence, inspire and support an interest in science, technology and engineering for the youth in our area and to provide our students with the opportunity and skills to foster a lifelong love of science.
The Quinte Regional Science and Technology Fair began in Belleville in 1960 at Moira Secondary school and the following year in 1961 the Rotary Club began its sponsorship. In 1965 a hobby show was added held at the Belleville Armouries when the fair moved there for the extra space. Several years ago the Quinte Regional Science and Technology Fair move to Loyalist College. Loyalist College provides an excellent site to display and support the science students in our area who wish to present their scientific results to the public and the judges. Top entries were selected to participate in the Canada-wide Science Fair. The Quinte Regional Science Fair began sending students to the Canada-wide Science Fair in 1962, Over the years many entries from our science fair have won national recognition.
Science Fairs Offer. . .Science Fairs offer students in grades 4 to 12 the opportunity to create original scientific research or innovative projects which are then displayed at various levels of competition. Science Fairs are offered at school, district, regional, national and international levels. Science Fair participants progress from a school or district Fair to a regional Science Fair. Each regional Science Fair sends
its top projects to the National Fair. -Canada-wide Science Fair.
Regional and National Science Fairs...Here young people share a week of
competition, socializing, cultural activities, scientific tours and workshops. Some students also go on to attend international Science Fairs. Our area has done extremely well at the Canada Wide Science Fair. This is directly related to the quality of our science education, the school support and especially the volunteers that make up our Quinte Regional
Science and Technology Fair.
