What are the Science Games?

Teams of students from Grades 1–6 explore the principles and theories of science first hand at the 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. The 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.

Teams and Registration

Each team should consist of 4–5 students and one coach who must be an adult, such as a teacher, parent, or Girl Guide/Scout Leader. The coach must be present on the day of the event. Team registration costs $25 per team.

The lottery for team registration will open on Wednesday, October 31, 2018. This page will be updated with a link when the lottery opens.  If you would like to receive an email update when registration launches please email [email protected]  and ask to be added to the Science Games mailing list.

If you have entered a team into the lottery you will be contacted shortly with an update on your team status. For more information on how to register please visit our Science Games FAQ Page.
