35th Montreal Regional Science & Technology Fair (MRSTF)
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 and Technology Fair and we represent the English-speaking community in the Greater Montréal (including the Lanaudière, Laurentides, Laval, Montérégie and Montreal regions).
The 35th edition of the Hydro-Québec Montreal Regional Science & Technology Fair is presented at Concordia University on March 26-28, 2017.
