Youth Science Canada announced early November that the city will host the 2020, 2023 and 2026 editions of Canada’s foremost youth science event, the Canada-Wide Science Fair (CWSF).

The weeklong, CWSF attracts more than 10,000 visitors, who attend to view projects developed by around 500 students in the area of science, technology, engineering and math (STEM). Visitors also experience interactive and hands-on exhibits from universities, colleges, museums, research agencies, and the private sector, as well as demonstrations, presentations, and workshops as part of STEM Expo. More than one million dollars in combined prize money, awards and scholarships are given out at the CWSF.

Partnering with TELUS World of Science Edmonton, participants will be invited to an educational event held by the broad-based science centre. The University of Alberta and the Edmonton Regional Science Fair are among other organizations that will host STEM experiences throughout the week.
