The results for the Canada-Wide Virtual Science Fair are in and Mentor College Intermediate students came away with a handful of awards. Virtual Science Fair is a Canada-wide competition for students who want to take their science projects into the virtual world. Students are required to make a website to display their project and publish it on the virtual science fair site. The projects are judged by teachers and professionals and the winners of the fair are awarded cash prizes.
