Step 1. Create a YSC Portal Account
To register for the Cariboo Mainline Regional Science Fair (CMRSF), you need a Youth Science Canada (YSC) Portal account. If you have a project partner, they need to create a separate YSC Portal account. Later, both accounts can be linked to the project.
If you have a YSC Portal account, please log in.
If you do not have a YSC Portal account, create one using the form below:
Step 2. Create your project
2A. Digital projects for the CMRSF are hosted on ProjectBoard. We encourage digital projects to aid in advanced judging. During the creation of your YSC Portal account, you will also create and validate a ProjectBoard account. Be sure to use the same email address you used for your YSC Portal account for your ProjectBoard account. Once your ProjectBoard account is set up, you can work on your project.
The video, Creating your project on ProjectBoard will guide you through the process.
2B. Physical three-fold boards are also allowed if you need; to supplement physical, paper-based projects you require a Title Page, 1-minute video and project 100-word summary created on ProjectBoard. Paper-based projects need to be transported to our advanced-judging location on time TBD.
Step 3: Submit your project to the Cariboo Mainline Regional Science Fair
Once your project is complete, you can submit it to the CMRSF:
Be sure your digital project is set to “Public mode,” otherwise you will not be able to link it in the YSC Portal. This rule also applies if you have a paper-based project and the three summary requirements on ProjectBoard.
If you have a project partner, be sure you have added them to the project as a Co-Owner using the red + under Team in the project Summary area on ProjectBoard.
The video, Submitting your project to a Regional STEM Fair will guide you through the process.
