About Us

We now host 2 fairs for students across Newfoundland and Labrador! We are devoted to the promotion and participation of youth in science fairs at the school, regional and national levels. Our mission is to engage and support youth innovation through project-based science and technology, aiding in the development of knowledge, skills and attitudes for excellence in a global community. We are a volunteer council that organizes the annual Cenovus Energy Eastern Newfoundland Science and Technology Fair and the NL Virtual Science Fair for Labrador, Western and Central Newfoundland and send students to participate at the annual Canada Wide Science Fair. Our council is composed of volunteer teachers, university researchers and entrepreneurs. 

The Newfoundland and Labrador Science Fairs Council is affiliated with Youth Science Canada (YSC). Since 1962 YSC has been making project-based science accessible to young Canadians with an interest in science. The YSC network includes over 100 local volunteer organizations from British Columbia to Nunavut to Newfoundland and Labrador, and encourages the scientific efforts of over half a million young Canadians.
