Event description

In 1981 the Montreal Regional Science Fair was created to regroup the best projects presented by young Anglophones from the Montreal metropolitan area.

In 2001 the regional fair became known as the Montreal Regional Science & Technology Fair. We represent the English-speaking community in the Greater Montréal, including the Lanaudière, Laurentides, Laval, Montérégie and Montreal regions.

PROJECT HARD COPIES: please note that the university is closed FRIDAY, Feb 23, so if you were planning to drop off the project hard copies IN PERSON, and we can find a time to meet Monday or Tuesday next week. I can also meet tomorrow if next week does work for you.

If you mailed the project hard copies, the mail room will bring them to me Monday or Tuesday.

ONLY the deadline to receive the paper hard copies has been extended to Tuesday Feb 27, 5 pm, be it by mail or in person.

The online registration system deadline to register projects HAS NOT CHANGED. It is still Sunday, February 25, 2018 at midnight.   

Please note: online registration closes on February 25, 2018 at midnight. The project hard copies can be submitted until February 26, 4 pm.

Ready to submit projects to us? Please be sure to have the following:
- Six (6) hard copies of the project, plus all the required forms (ex: ethics approval. etc.)
- Payment 

UPDATE (Jan-26-2018):

Project Types Effective 2005, the Montreal Regional Science & Technology Fair accepts only certain project types from a particular grade level. See table below.

Level Experimentation Design Study
Senior 2 Yes Yes Yes
Senior 1 Yes Yes No
Intermediate Yes Yes No
Junior Yes Yes No

Regional project admission is only experimentation and design-type projects. Although individual schools may have local projects that are study based, schools are not allowed to forward them to the regional science fair. After review by a judging committee, a project may be refused entry or be ineligible for all prizes and/or without refund. The Chief Judge will notify the school representative of the final decision.

However, the exception will be for Senior 2 where Study is allowed if it is “Applied Research”. The project is designed to solve practical problems rather than just to acquire knowledge. It is the understanding of a phenomenon and, more importantly, improving on the situation. This is different from “Basic Research” where it is an expansion of human knowledge but it does not improve on the situation.

UPDATE (Jan-20-2018):

2018 MRSTF_schedule.

Exhibitor attendance throughout this three-day event, INCLUDING the closing/award ceremony, is MANDATORY (unless prior arrangements, for exceptional circumstances only, are made with the organizers and the school). No meals will be provided to the exhibitors or chaperons during this 3-day event.

UPDATE (Jan-20-2018):

Please be sure to inform your students that when they register on the SGI system (https://sgi.reseau-cdls-cls.ca/#/login ), when asked for the region to choose "Montreal Regional Science and Technology Fair" NOT the "Exposciences region de Montreal", as that is the competition for the francophone schools.
