STEAM Expo

News

Overview

STEAM Expo is a science fair for the twenty-first century. It includes sciences, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics. It provides students in kindergarten to grade 12 with an extracurricular opportunity to pursue their STEAM interests. Through creative research, design, building, and problem solving skills, students produce an abundance of genuinely intriguing and informative projects and presentations covering the different STEAM components.

STEAM Expo also provides an opportunity for related industry practitioners, businesses, university faculties, and professional organizations in the Fredericton area to share their expertise and passions with the community.

Kindergarten to Grade 4

The elementary school component of STEAM Expo is based on a non-competitive philosophy, which encourages student participation, sharing, appreciation for diversity, and inclusion. The event is a fun, engaging, and inspiring opportunity for our younger students to share their enthusiasm for science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics. Participants receive a certificate, a water bottle, a medal, and T-shirt for their efforts.

Grade 5 to Grade 12

Participants from grades 5 to 12 will have their poster-based projects evaluated by a panel of expert judges from throughout the Fredericton and area science, technology, engineering and math community.  All projects will be on display throughout the day of the Expo and open for the public viewing. Participants will receive a certificate, thermo-pencil and T-shirt for their efforts. Cash prizes are also awarded to the best projects across a variety of categories. Winners in various categories and grade divisions may move on to the North-West New Brunswick Regional Science Fair, where they could earn an opportunity to represent New Brunswick at the Canada-Wide Virtual Science Fair.
