Science Expo 2018

Science Expo atom

Celebrate knowledge and discovery with us at the third annual Coquitlam Public Library Science Expo (CPLSE) for elementary, middle and high school students throughout the Tri-Cities.

Scheduled for Thursday, May 10, 2018, the Expo invites science-loving students to exhibit their amazing experiments for parents, judges and members of the public. Projects will fit into four categories: Elementary (grades 4 and 5), Middle (grades 6, 7 and 8), Junior (grades 9 and 10) and Senior (grades 11 and 12).

Students whose projects are judged best will win prizes – in the form of a cheque, as well as either a trophy or medal – for first, second and third place in each category. The Expo will once again award more than $2,000 in prize money for winners.

To participate in the Expo, students must submit a Registration Form and a Consent Form:

The deadline for submissions is Monday, April 16, 2018.

We will include as many exhibitors as we can. However, depending on the volume of submissions we receive, we may not have space to include everyone who has tried to register. All students will be notified about the status of their project no later than Friday, April 20. 

You can find more information about the event in our introductory document:
