Three SD43 students win the Greater Vancouver Regional Science Fair Awards

April 14, 2022

On April 12, three SD43 students received awards at the Greater Vancouver Regional Science Fair Awards Ceremony. This event is the largest STEAM-based competition in the province for students in grades 7 to 12. 


Congratulations to Joseph Chiao and Joseph Goyder, Centennial Secondary School students who won silver medals in the senior division and $2000 scholarships each to UBC for their project DATECS (Direct Atmospheric Thermal Energy Capturing System), a theoretical process that produces electricity by reducing the temperature of the Earth's atmosphere.


Congratulations to Rachel Schmid, a Riverside Secondary student, who won a bronze medal for her work on CRISPR technology (gene editing for utilization in potential Ebola vaccines).

We are incredibly proud of your accomplishments!
