This event runs from 8:00 AM–5:00 PM. Volunteers can attend for a:
- Full Day (8:00 AM–5:00 PM)
- Morning Shift (8:00 AM–12:30 PM), or
- Afternoon Shift (12:00 PM–5:00 PM)
We are looking for volunteer engineers and geoscientists from the Lower Mainland to help out at this event. Volunteers will judge teams as they work through various science challenges at the Science Games, help set up and take down activities, clean activity stations, and have fun inspiring the next generation of engineers and geoscientists!
We have a particular need for geoscience volunteers.
Teams of students from Grades 1–6 explore the principles and theories of science first hand at Science Games.
This interschool event is organized by the Engineers and Geoscientists BC as part of National Engineering and Geoscience Month (NEGM). We are the regulatory body for engineers and geoscientists practicing in BC.
The goal of this event is to provide a fun environment where students are able to showcase their science talent, and promote interest in science education and careers in scientific fields. Science Games is an interactive science competition which allows students to investigate how science affects their everyday lives. Students work together on a set of applications or problem-solving challenges which demonstrate the interesting and entertaining side of scientific exploration.
This event is team-oriented and activities align with many areas of scientific study covered in school. Students work together and use their science skills and ideas to create original solutions to problems.

There are two types of Science Games Challenges:
- Work-At-Home Events: These are made in advance and brought to the Science Games for testing and judging or practiced in advance and performed on the day of the Science Games.
- Mystery Events: These are solved the day of the Science Games and no pre-planning is needed.
