Science Expo 2017

Science Expo atom

Celebrate knowledge and discovery with us at the second annual Coquitlam Public Library Science Expo (CPLSE) for elementary, middle and high school students. Last year, the Expo focussed on the achievements of students who lived or went to school in the City of Coquitlam. In 2017, the competition will be open to kids and teens throughout the Tri-Cities.

Scheduled for Thursday, May 11, 2017, the Expo invites science-loving students to exhibit their amazing experiments for parents, judges and members of the public.

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. Schools with first place award recipients will receive a cheque valued at $250.00 for their school library collections.

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

NOTE: The deadline for submissions has been extended until April 18.

We will include as many submissions as we can. However, depending on the response, we may not have space to include everyone who is hoping to compete.
