Distance Learning and Home School students are particularly welcome to enter the Vancouver Island Regional Science Fair. Many are already doing Project- or Inquiry-Based Learning, and the Science Fair offers them a venue to present and discuss their work with competent and interested grown-ups.
If you are enrolled in a Distance Learning School, please have your Teacher or Learning Consultant sign off on the entry forms. Electronic signatures are fine.
For Home School students, a parent can sign as the teacher in the registration forms to verify that (i) the students did their own work and (ii) the students followed the safety and ethics rules (See Lauren Hudson's article below).
When filling out the application form, you will be asked for grade level. Here's a chart for looking up grade based on age
age 9 - gr 4
age 10 - gr 5
age 11 - gr 6
age 12 - gr 7
age 13 - gr 8
age 14 - gr 9
