On Wednesday, March 11, students set up their projects and took part in some fun and informative science related activities such as robotics and dry ice demonstrations. Then on Thursday, March 12 the judging and awards ceremony took place, with gold, silver and bronze medals awarded in a variety of categories. Four students were chosen to represent Manitoba at the Canada Wide Science Fair in May.

One of the overall highlights was the students’ focus on community-based research projects. Many young people chose to investigate real problems or issues found in their own First Nations such as, Green-Blue Alga Threatening Lake Winnipeg, and Testing Tap/Groundwater Quality of Selected Households Situated near the Dumpsite of Little Saskatchewan. “This is one of the best ways to connect schoolwork to the real world,” states Rudy Subedar, MFNERC’s Integrated Programs Manager. “The sense of relevance and contribution students can achieve by doing research to solve real problems in their home communities can only result in greater feelings of interest and accomplishment.”

Awards time!

Congratulations to each and every one of the students for their high level of work and enthusiasm. Thank you also to the dedicated teachers and parents who provide the commitment, time, and support necessary for the growth and achievement demonstrated by these students. See next year!
