Assalam Alaikum Dear parents
I hope you had a nice time your family during the long week-end. Please read the following message from the ORSF co-chair Jovan Groen.It contains important information regarding the Ottawa regional science fair.
Congratulations on your participation in the upcoming Ottawa Regional Science Fair (ORSF). We are proud of your dedication to science and wish you the best of luck this coming weekend. With only a few short days before the fair, we wanted to share some key information that will help to make the 52nd annual ORSF a positive and memorable experience for everyone.
1) The entire fair is taking place at the Raven's Nest Athletics Complex on the Carleton University Campus, for a map, please see http://www2.carleton.ca/campus/. For parking, it is best to use lot P5 directly beside the gym. Unfortunately, this is a pay lot on both Friday and Saturday. Be sure to advise whoever is coming with you to purchase a parking ticket.
2) All project set-ups take place on Friday, April 5th between 4pm and 6:30pm at the Raven's Nest Gymnasium, inside the Physical Recreation Center (AC on the map). You MUST bring your four digit project number with you. Check-in takes place at the ORSF registration desk by telling us your project number (e.g. 1304). You will then proceed with your project set-up and safety inspections. You can leave after you have your safety inspection sheet signed.
New this year, we will have various representatives from Let's Talk Science showcasing demonstrations at the back of the gymnasium beginning at 4pm and culminating in a Chemistry Magic Show to be held at the Bell Theatre in the Minto Centre at 6:30pm. All participants and their families are welcome to attend.
Please note that NO SATURDAY PROJECT SETUP will be permitted. The Gymnasium will be locked overnight, but any easily removable valuables (laptops etc.) should either be locked or brought in for 9:15am on Saturday morning. Projects will be pre-judged between 7:30 AM and 9:15 AM, no admission into the gym is allowed at this time.
If you haven't already done so, be sure to complete your self-nomination for the many ORSF special awards. This year's deadline is Sunday, March 31st at midnight.
We look forward to seeing you next weekend!
