FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. — Four North Peace students are headed to the Canada-Wide Science Fair in Edmonton after competing in regional fairs since March.

The four students are part of the 56 students across 12 regions selected as finalists in B.C. and the Yukon for the 2023 Canada-Wide Science Fair.

The chosen students will have all their expenses paid for the Canada-Wide Science Fair after they competed at the Northern BC Science Fair at North Peace Secondary School in April.

Taha Ahmed, a grade 9 Dr. Kearney student, did a Vidiscite: Distraction Free Video Resources project. 

Ahmed also won $250 and a trophy at the Northern BC Science Fair.

Sage Elliot, a grade 9 student from Freedom Thinkers, shared a project called Should you Spray? The effects of common pesticides on ecosystems.

Elliot won $175 and a trophy at the science fair held at North Peace Secondary School.

Swas Ghosh, a grade 10 student at the Energetic Learning Campus, did a project called Green Pools of CO2: The Effect of CO2 on household plants.

Ghosh won $250 and a trophy at the regional science fair.

Maryam Khanum, a grade 9 Bert Bowes student, did a feasibility assessment of MFC to treat oil and gas-produce water and generate electricity.

Khanum won $650 and a trophy at the science fair.

The students will participate in the Canada-Wide Science Fair in Edmonton from May 14th to 19th.
