Science Expo 2020

On May 14, 2020, Coquitlam Public Library will host its fifth annual Science Expo, featuring more than $2,000 in cash prizes for students. A partnership event with School District 43 and Douglas College, the Science Expo is open to kids and teens from grades 4 - 12 who live or go to school in the Tri-Cities, Anmore or Belcarra.

Students can compete on their own, or in teams of two. Projects will fit into four categories: 

  • Elementary: grade 4 and 5
  • Middle: grade 6 to 8
  • Junior: grade 9 and 10
  • Senior: grade 11 and 12

This web page contains all the documents required to participate in this year's Expo: a registration form, a consent form and an introductory document that describes the Expo in greater detail:

Students can begin researching and preparing their projects any time. The registration deadline is 9 p.m. on Thursday, Apr. 30.

The Expo will be held in the library’s City Centre Branch at 1169 Pinetree Way. On the day of the Expo, a group of judges – mostly Douglas College academics and instructors – will select the top projects in each category. 

Cash prizes range up to $400 for first place in the Senior category. 

Winners also receive medals and trophies.
