Thank you for reaching out to Youth Science Canada. We’ll be in touch shortly!
While you’re here, can we tell you about our mission?
Youth Science Canada creates value for Canada by fueling the curiosity of Canadian youth through science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) projects.
We believe this is one of the most important causes in our world today: formative and affirmative STEM experiences for today’s youth, leading to a better and more innovative tomorrow for all…and we’ve got the numbers to back it up!
Every year, approximately 500,000 K-12 students undertake a STEM project.
Approximately 90 YSC-affiliated regional fairs showcase 10,000 of these projects.
The top 400 projects are selected to participate in the Canada-Wide Science Fair each year.
We couldn’t do this work without the generous support of our partners in the private and public sectors, individual donors, and the work of more than 8,000 volunteers. If you’d like to support our work, we would be truly grateful!
“As a Grade 13 student, I participated in the city science fair in Toronto and then went on to represent my region at the Canada-Wide Science Fair. It was an experience that would ultimately define my life.”
“Science fair was a life-changing experience that really made me realize, if I set my mind to something, anything is possible. It was an exciting moment for a 15-year-old.”
