If you’re a fan of science and seeing what the next generation of scientists have up their sleeve, the Lethbridge Regional Science Fair and Science Olympics are taking place this weekend.
Starting Friday, students in grades 1 through 12 will be showing off their hard work and creativity in the form of science projects.
Students from all over the region will attend and those in grades 7 to 12 are eligible for the Grand Prize which is representing the region at the Canada wide science fair taking place in Edmonton in May.
Locke Spencer, President and Board Chair of the Southern Alberta Technology Council, says the projects they get always change from year to year.
“We’ve seen a number of things from students designing prosthetic limbs, to research into bacteria and microshopic invisible things, to solving environmental problems,” says Spencer.
Spencer says students have even gone as far as to investigating the possibility of growing plants with martian soil.
The Science Fair and Science Olympics are taking place Friday, March 31 and Saturday, April 1st at the Lethbridge College.
