Three students from St. Teresa of Calcutta Catholic Elementary School selected to participate in Canada-Wide Science Fair.

A group of Niagara Catholic students are among the 450 students selected to participate in the Canada-Wide Science Fair (CWSF). 

All three students are from St. Teresa of Calcutta Catholic Elementary School in St. Catharines. 

Each year, over 25,000 students across Canada participate in about 100 regional science fairs, and the top two percent of all participants in Grades 7 to 12 are selected for the CWSF. 

The board says Grade 7 student Taylor Perri won admission after winning the gold medal at the Niagara Region Science and Engineering Fair in April with her project, "Which Lotion Works Best to Keep Skin Hydrated?"

As well, grade 8 students Zoe Taraba-Blair and Alex Diaz won a bronze medal at the local fair for their project, "Does Climate 
Affect Mushroom Growth?"

As part of the judging process, participants will go through three interviews with STEM experts. 

The virtual event will take place May 16 - 20, and will include panel discussions and webinars with colleges and universities. 

Nearly $1 million in medals, prizes and sponsorships will be presented.
