The Canada Wide Science Fair was just held in Charlottetown, PEI. The event was spread out from the arrival date of May 12, 2012 to the departure date of May 19, 2012 and had over 500 participants. The RASC "Award for Excellence in Astronomy"  for a Junior went to Patrick Fraser [13]  of Avon Maitland-Huron Perth, Ontario on "The Confinable Cosmos".

This project outlines certain problems that state the size of the Universe must be finite. Then it includes a finite model of the Universe that appears infinite in three dimensions. Also, this project touches upon how one could mathematically calculate the size and volume of the Universe."
