Twelve of Canada’s top high school scientists have been selected by Youth Science Canada to represent the country at the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair (Intel ISEF) from May 10-16 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Intel ISEF is the world’s largest science fair.

Team Canada-ISEF 2015 was selected by a distinguished panel of 18 university faculty, industry researchers, educators and Team Canada-ISEF alumni through a competitive national selection process that began in October and concluded today as part of Youth Science Month.
Last year, the 12 members of Team Canada-ISEF put on a world-class performance, bringing home a total of 11 Special Awards and 10 Grand Awards – including two First Awards! 
This year’s Team Canada-ISEF includes 6 Intel ISEF veterans and 6 newcomers from British Columbia and Ontario, and they are (left to right, top to bottom in photo):
