National Exhibition of Scientific Projects

While traveling across the Atlantic, the team of Compilatio visited the National Science Projects Expo hosted by Youth Science Canada. This event was a great opportunity to discover the 2 or 3 best projects by region among the 458 projects, and find the winning project. These projects were all done by students from secondary institutions.

Youth Science Canada: The role of Compilatio

All of the projects have been analysed by Compilatio’s Copyright software to detect potential plagiarism. According to Reni Barlow, director of Youth Science Canada, everything went well in terms of use and detection, but one project was detected for plagiarism. As a concequence, the participants have been invalidated and the project was not shown during the day.
