The 35th Montreal Regional Science and Technology Fair, sponsored by Hydro Quebec, took place this past weekend at Concordia University’s downtown campus.  Each year the fair brings together hundreds of High School and CEGEP students from the Greater Montreal Area to present their scientific research.  To qualify for the fair, all projects must be research-based and have won at a local school fair.
