Too Cool For School
Art & Science Fair


TORONTO, ON (Feb. 10, 2010)The Too Cool For School Art & Science Fair is an interdisciplinary project in which people from all walks of life come together in a convergence of art and science. The event is structured just like a school science fair — participants will display their projects on rows of tables, and will be on hand to discuss their work with the public. The difference is that this event is as much about art as it is about science. Participants will be selected from an open call for submissions on the basis of originality, depth of inquiry, creative innovation and the element of surprise.
Deadline: March 26, 2010

Calling all dreamers and inventors, original thinkers and adventurous tinkerers, mad scientists and misunderstood artists, anyone with an over-active imagination and a love/hate relationship with the so-called "real world" – we want to meet you and your pet project at the Too Cool For School Art & Science Fair. To find out how to participate, visit the project website at
