The high quality of her science project has enabled a Conseil scolaire catholique Nouvelon student to qualify for the 2021 Canada-Wide Science Fair taking place virtually this week from May 17 to 21. Gaia Dhatt from École St-Denis (Sudbury) is among the thousands emerging Canadian scientists from grades 7 through 12 to participate in some 100 regional science fairs throughout the country, where they present their research and their accomplishments as well as compete to represent their region in the Canada-Wide Science Fair.

Gaia Dhatt stood out during the Sudbury Regional Science Fair held on online in April. This grade 8 student from École St-Denis was honoured for the quality of her project entitled “L’impact de la Covid-19 sur notre génération” (The Impact of Covid-19 on our Generation). Gaia Dhatt placed 1st in Life Sciences for the Junior Division and was the winner of the Child Health Research Award.

“CSC Nouvelon students have a truly well-earned reputation for academic excellence. This time, a junior scientist will now have an opportunity to shine at the national level and will take advantage of this unique, high-level science competition opportunity to reach new horizons,” stated Mr. Paul Henry, CSC Nouvelon Director of Education. “The consistent participation of our students in the Canada-Wide Science Fair reflects the quality of the educational program provided to our students as well as the high level of excellence of our teachers in the fields of science and technology,”.

The Conseil scolaire catholique Nouvelon offers a French-language Catholic Educational Program that is widely recognized for its excellence. The CSC Nouvelon provides a quality learning environment and academic program that runs from early childhood to adult education, with some 6,400 students enrolled in 27 elementary, 1 virtual school and 10 secondary schools.
