Promoting Excellence in
STEM Among Our Youth

The Waterloo-Wellington Science & Engineering Fair has been developing Canada’s capacity for high quality research in Science, Technology and Engineering since 1974.

The WWSEF is open to Senior Elementary and High School students from Waterloo Region, Wellington County, and Upper Grand District School Boards. Grade 7-12 home-schooled or students from schools that do not run science fair programs are also welcome as individual entries.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we will be holding a virtual WWSEF 2022 fair on April 6, 2022. Registration will begin February 5 and be available until March 12, 2021.

Showcasing the Next Generation of Researchers and Innovators

The Waterloo-Wellington Science & Engineering Fair is an annual event that brings together the best of young scientific minds in our community.

During this event, projects are placed into three divisions: Engineering, Life Sciences or Physical & Mathematical Sciences. These projects are further divided into three categories based on the grades of the participants: Junior (Gr. 7-8), Intermediate (Gr. 9-10) or Senior (Gr. 11-12).

Students and projects are judged according to a national standard that includes the scientific method, creativity, organization, research, background knowledge, visual impact and a written summary of the project. Awards and scholarships are given to students who have excelled in these criteria.

Promoting Excellence in
STEM Among Our Youth

The WWSEF isn’t just a place for students to showcase their scientific and academic prowess – it’s also an excellent experience for them to grow as scientists and researchers.

Winners at our regional fair go on to the Canada-Wide Science Fair and if that is won, they become a part of Team Canada at the International Science and Engineering Fair to gain global recognition.

Many of our WWSEF alumni have gone on to become leaders and innovators in our society, making a true and lasting impact in our world.
