Bay Area Science and Engineering Fair

For almost 50 years, the Bay Area Science & Engineering Fair has provided a forum for students in the Hamilton/Halton area to develop their scientific skills and prepare for national and international competition. BASEF is one of the largest and longest-running science fairs in Canada, and features outstanding work from the the hundreds of students who compete each year.

The Bay Area Science and Engineering Fair draws students in grades 7 through 12 from the City of Hamilton (including Ancaster, Dundas and Stoney Creek), the Regional Municipality of Halton (including Burlington, Oakville and Milton) in Southern Ontario. Students from Haldimand, Norfolk and Brant Counties have participated since 2003.

BASEF 2008 was held from March 26th to March 29th at the Sheridan Institute of Technology and Advanced Learning. Cash, prizes and scholarships worth more than $150,000 were awarded to student participants. Special congratulations to Best-in-Fair winner Tobias Williams and to the twenty students who have won all-expense-paid trips to compete at either the Canada Wide Science Fair in Ottawa or the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair in Atlanta, Georgia in May.
