Vancouver District Science Fair 2023

Friday, March 3, 2023 | Langara College

The Vancouver District Science Fair is intended for students who attend public school in Vancouver (SD #39). If you are a VSB student, keep reading — the information on this blog is for you! Students from other school districts or independent schools are not eligible to participate in VDSF and should refer to the Greater Vancouver Regional Science Fair website instead.



Find VDSF on Instagram (@vdsf.projects2023) and Linktree (https://linktr.ee/vdsf.projects).

If you are a student, find out how science fair works at your school first, especially if you are doing an independent project. Not sure who to ask? See this list of VDSF teacher contacts.

NOTE: Students from University Hill Secondary will not be able to apply for VDSF 2023 (and any subsequent fairs, including the regional fair) as the Science department cannot provide teacher sponsors at this time.

If you are a teacher, ask to join the VDSF teachers group chat on Microsoft Teams. Your department’s teacher contact can help connect you to the VDSF coordinator.

If you are a judge, read our info for judges and check your e-mail for an invitation in November.


Students — Send your questions to the VDSF coordinator at vdsfprojects@vsb.bc.ca. Questions related to ethics approval should be sent to the regional ethics reviewer (vdsfethics@gvrsf.ca) and include the VDSF coordinator, teacher sponsor, and project partner.

Teachers — Send questions to the VDSF coordinator on Microsoft Teams, either in the group chat or via direct message. Your department’s teacher contact can help connect you to the VDSF coordinator.

Judges — Send your questions to Chief Judge at vdsfjudges@vsb.bc.ca
