The Lambton County Science Fair is back.

After a one-year hiatus caused by the pandemic, organizers have planned a virtual science fair for local students this year.

Students must register their project by March 26 but have until April 5 to complete their submission. Awards will be announced April 11.

The number of cash prizes is simplified, but up to five students will again have an opportunity to enter the virtual Canada Wide Science Fair.

“The fair had grown three-fold over the past decade and we were keen to continue increasing participation,” said organizing committee chair Stephanie Lobsinger. “We’re hoping that we can maintain some continuity and get back to a physical fair next year.”
