What’s happening in Rainbow Schools?

Rainbow students participate in Sudbury Regional Science Fair on April 6 and 7

Thirteen projects from students at Lockerby Composite School were selected to compete at the Sudbury Regional Science Fair in April at Laurentian University.

A number of students from Rainbow Schools will take part in the Sudbury Regional Science Fair at Laurentian University’s Cliff Fielding Engineering Building on April 6 and 7, 2024.

Grade 7 and 8 students from Lo-Ellen Park Secondary School won the honour to participate at the regional level following the Rainbow District School Board Elementary Science Fair on March 5, 2024. They will be joined by secondary students from Lockerby Composite School.

Projects from the Sudbury Regional Science Fair will be selected for the Canada-Wide Science Fair in Ottawa in May.

“Students who prepare Science Fair projects let their curiosity guide them as they question, observe and explore,” said Rainbow District School Board Director of Education Bruce Bourget. “We wish all participants success as they vie to compete at the national level.”

Participating in the Science Fair gives students the opportunity to actively engage in authentic learning. As they investigate questions that are real, they enhance their scientific skills and further their interest in science related careers.

Congratulations to all students attending the Sudbury Regional Science Fair:
