We increase Canada's capacity for high quality research and innovation by assisting with the development of the scientific and technological talents of young people in our region.
 
WWSEF is open to Senior Elementary and High School students from Waterloo Region, Wellington County, and Upper Grand District School Board. Grade 7 to 12 home - schooled or students from schools that do not run science fair programs are also welcome as individual entries.

Join us for our 42nd Annual Fair

This Chem 13 periodic table tile combines aspects of the element tungsten with WWSEF, which was founded in 1973.
The W symbol for the element comes from wolfram, the name of the element in many European countries. Tungsten was first extracted from the mineral wolframite.
Each year the 350 young researchers and innovators who exhibit their projects for our 120 judges begin with bright ideas, hence the light bulb with the tungsten filament. Tungsten is considered robust, just like the WWSEF has been for 40 years.
The tile is the creative and technical work of Eddie Kim, now at the U of Guelph, and a multi-year gold medalist at the WWSEF and competitor at the Canada-Wide Science Fair.
