Now in its 6th year, the Bison Regional Science Fair, sponsored in part by Genome Prairie, celebrated another year of achievement for bright young Manitoba students
The 6th annual Bison Regional Science Fair (BRSF) was held this April in Winnipeg, Manitoba. Baljot Rai, Annika Paliwal and Sneh Vyas were this year’s fair finalists. The finalists will now compete at the national science fair event in Edmonton, Alberta, from May 14-19, 2023.
Sponsored in part by Genome Prairie, the fair encourages elementary and high school students to develop skills related to the scientific method while celebrating curiosity and innovation. The fair’s award ceremony was held at Holy Cross School in Winnipeg. Dr. Infeoma Okwor, Genome Prairie’s Manager, Programs, attended the ceremony and greeted its finalists.
Dr. Anju Bajaj, the fair’s lead organizer, said the fair continues growing in size and popularity.
“Every year, students across Manitoba brainstorm, research, and develop a plan for their entries of STEM projects for this fairs,” said Bajaj. “This activity has now grown where more than 500 students showcase more than 400 projects.”
The Bison event has a strong record of academic achievement. A recent finalist, Keerthan Kamala Krishnamoorthy, will represent Team Canada at the upcoming Regeneron International Science and Engineering Fair in Dallas, Texas, this May.
“We wish Keerthan all the best as his representation in team Canada,” said Bajaj. We are blessed to have such a wonderful community that comes together to celebrate the achievements of our young scientists.”
