The 2017 Vancouver Island Regional Science Fair was held on April 9-10 at the University of Victoria. This year there were over 100 exhibits, including 4 from CCCS. Participants did a phenomenal job representing the school and they should all be extremely proud of their hard work and accomplishments.
2017 Vancouver Island Regional Science Fair participants were as follows:
Jude Edgington and Luka Hurschler (grade 5)
Anais Chace and Rebecca Stone (grade 6)
Robert Hou (grade 8)
Ryan Anbudaiyan (grade 8)
A huge thank you to all involved, in particular to participants and their parents. Science fair takes a tremendous amount of time, effort and dedication to be successful. Many additional hours were spent outside of the regular school timetable by students in the completion of projects and in preparation for such a big event. Without the excellent support of families, friends, and mentors the school’s participation at the regional level would not be possible.
We had great success at the Vancouver Island Regional Science Fair winning the following awards:
Jude Edgington and Luka Hurschler won a corporate award from Victoria Harbour Ferry
Anais Chace and Rebecca Stone won a corporate award from the Bateman Centre
Ryan Anbudaiyan won a corporate award from Quarky Science
Ryan Anbudaiyan won an additional award from the Royal Astronomical Society of Canada, Victoria Chapter
Congratulations to all participants!

Students did a great job on both design challenges at the UVic Engineering Olympics. One of the groups was able to build the highest structure of the day (2 storeys) that could hold a heavy load of playdough, 2 large batteries, and a chain of paper clips—awesome job! All the structures were build with only a few cards and two sections of tape.
For the large group challenge students did a fantastic job getting the marble into the cup many times after riding a “roller coaster” during the practice runs, but unfortunately, our luck ran out when it came time to judging. Super job again and great teamwork!
A few other activities students participated in were a clean water and parachuting activity. We also had the opportunity to tour the EcoSat and AUVic clubs, which were interesting and informative. Overall it was an awesome day for our students.
