Changes to the 2017 WBRSF

This year, the Wood Buffalo Regional Science Fair will be adapting a new judging model. Students will undergo two rounds of judging in order to ensure the most accurate ranking of projects.  This model will also have a similar timeline to the school day which may be more beneficial for students.

Timeline

8:00am –  Student Registration open

8:30am – Judge Orientation

9:00am – Round one of judging will start promptly

11:30am – Round one ends

11:45 am – Student and Judge lunch

12:30 pm – Round two of judging begins

2:30-3:00pm – Round two complete, students picked up by guardians.
