Thirteen Prep boys and one Upper School student represented the College at the Toronto Regional Science Fair at the University of Toronto Scarborough Campus, on the weekend of April 2. These students won top honours at the 13th annual Prep Science Fair in December, qualifying them for the Toronto Regional Fair. The boys spent all day Saturday at UofT presenting their projects to judges, attending workshops and listening to guest speakers. As usual, our boys represented UCC with pride, standing out among the best. Photos from the fair may be found here:
