April 10th, 2019. The 57th Annual North Bay Regional Science Fair (NBRSF) was a huge success for the more than 150 participants who took part in this year’s competition held at Nipissing University Sports Complex. More than 50 awards including scholarships, trophies, medals, plaques, certificates, and cheques were presented for the scientific initiatives of these brilliant students.
The highlight of the Awards ceremony was the designation of those who will represent the region at this year’s Canada-Wide Science Fair being held in Fredericton, NB. May 11 to 17. Three projects (five students) were selected for this exciting opportunity.
