Results of BASEF 2008

On Saturday, March 29th, 2008, cash, prizes and scholarships worth more than $150,000 were awarded to student participants in the 48th Annual Bay Area Science and Engineering Fair held at Sheridan Institute of Technology and Advanced Learning in Oakville, Ontario at the conclusion of the three-day event.

Nearly 300 students from grades 7 – 12 in Hamilton, Halton, Brant, Haldimand and Norfolk spent months preparing 200 science and engineering projects. After a day of judging on Thursday and a Saturday morning of public viewing by a large and inquisitive crowd, awards were presented to more than half of the participants.

Twenty students have won all-expense-paid trips to compete at either the Canada Wide Science Fair in Ottawa (Saturday, May 10th to Sunday, May 18th) or the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair in Atlanta, Georgia (Sunday, May 11th to Saturday, May 17th).

We congratulate all of our participants for their hard work and enthusiasm; judges, guests and organizers were all very impressed with the array of remarkable projects.


Two awards were misattributed in the awards gallery; the award winners for Primary Fluid Systems Physical Sciences Awards - Second (B) and Primary Fluid Systems Earth and Environment Awards - First (b) are now correct. 2008/03/30.
