Team BASEF @ CWSF

CWSF 2007 Logo

May 18th, 2007
BASEF, thanks to the generosity of our many sponsors, sent sixteen finalists with their fifteen projects to the Canada Wide Science Fair in Truro, Nova Scotia from May 12th to 21st, 2007. Five awards were awarded to four of the projects. See below for a complete list of the awards won. We're truly proud of the work and achievements of all of our team members, and we extend our thanks to all of the parents, teachers and fellow BASEF volunteers who encouraged and supported the kids as they prepared for the national competition.

News and Photographs

Notes from the Front is a blog from the fair with gossip and photos.

The Team BASEF photostream on flickr has lots of pictures, including some yanked from the kids cameras. Try looking at the tag cloud for the photostream. You'll see that you can jump to all photos of a particular day (e.g. day 1, day 2, etc.) or person (e.g. Caroline).

Note that I've started a new photostream for the CWSF 2007 photos - the CWSF 2006 photos remain on the old photostream.
