FLASF 2014 is scheduled for Thursday and Friday, April 3, 4 at Queens University, McArthur Hall.
The Frontenac, Lennox and Addington Science Fair (FLASF) is an annual event that provides an opportunity for Grades 5 to 12 students in the region to showcase their knowledge, talents and ingenuity in science, engineering and technology. We look forward to seeing you at the 43rd Frontenac Lennox and Addington Science Fair, which is scheduled for Thursday 3 April 2014 and Friday 4 April 2014 at McArthur Hall, Queen’s University.
FLASF is a community run, local competition where prizes, trophies, certificates and cash awards are given to students with what are judged to be the best projects. Approximately $15,000 in cash and travel awards to the Canada Wide Science Fair are given to the winning students each year. FLASF is an affiliate of Youth Science Canada, who manage the Canada Wide Science Fair.
