- Postponed – 12th Annual Abdus Salam Science Fair 2020
In the wake of recent Corona virus (named COVID-19) outbreak in China, the governments around the world, including Government of Canada, are making exceptional measures to reduce the further spread of the virus. The disease continues to effect various parts of Asia, Australia, Europe, Africa and North America and this widespread outbreak is due to human-to-human transmission. According to news reports, there are over 95,000 global cases in more than 75 countries.
With this evolving situation the 12th Annual Abdus Salam Science Fair 2020 has been postponed, which was scheduled for Sunday March 08, 2020 in Maple High School. The fair has so far attracted about 200 projects that have been registered on the website. This certainly means that as many as 500 students, parents, visitors, dignitaries and volunteers would have gathered for this annual science event. Given the growing concerns over the safety and security of all the participants, especially the young kids, the decision has been made to postpone the science fair to a later date which will be announced when situation permits.
