Going to CWSF meant having the opportunity to interact with other students excited about science, live in a university environment, present my research, hear about the research of others and listen to astronauts Robert Thirsk (CWSF 2003, Calgary) and Julie Payette (CWSF 2005, Vancouver).

CWSF: 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009

It meant one glorious week of adventure, with the calm, professional, yet always nerve-racking tone of judging, sandwiched in-between grand opening banquets, concerts, and field trips. But the best part of all were the fantastic times with old friends and all the new ones I met by week's end.

Elise Tessier (Senior Ambasador)

Age: 21
Province: Nova Scotia
Currently: Biology Major at Mount Allison University
CWSF: 2005, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2011, 2012

The best part of CWSF is meeting so many amazing people and being a part of the science fair community. Sharing what you are doing with experts, as well as other students who share similar interests is a highlight. However, I have made many great friendships. Today I'm even housemates with one of the friends that I met at CWSF in Truro in 2007!
