How to Register

Registration Update: We will be re-opening a limited number of spots for Phase 2 based on our volunteer capacity in mid-January.

For our 2022 program, you can register as an individual participant or register as a group with up to two other participants. There are 2 steps to complete to register for this program:

  1. Participation Form: The Participation Form is where you include your participant information. Please double check to ensure all information on this form is accurate before submitting.
  2. Program Registration/Payment: 5–7 business days after submitting your Participation Form, you’ll receive an email update which either:
    • Confirms space is available; or
    • Places you on the waitlist.
    • If space is available, you’ll receive a link to finalize your registration by paying the $20 registration fee. Please finalize your registration as soon as possible once you receive this email.

After these 2 steps have been completed you’ll receive a confirmation email verifying your registration is complete.

Group Registration

Each Science Games participant needs their parent/guardian to submit an individual Participation Form on their behalf. Registrants can use the Participation Form to create a group code and link registrations if friends or siblings are signing up and want to participate together. Only 3 individual registrations can be linked together.

Please see below for instructions on how to register as a group:

  1. Parent A registers their child and creates a group code.
  2. Parent A copies the group code from the 2022 Science Games Participation Form and shares it with Parent B and Parent C.
    • Please note: This code can only be shared with a MAXIMUM of 2 other Science Games registrants.
  3. Parent B and Parent C complete the Participation Form for their children and include the group code share with them by Parent A.
  4. All parents receive a follow up email from Engineers and Geoscientists BC confirming their registration status and if space is available the link to finalize their registration and submit payment online.

What is the Science Games?

With a focus on collaboration, connection, discovery, and fun, BC students will have an opportunity to embark on a 3-week science journey in February and March of 2022! At the Science Games, students from Grades 1–6 across BC explore the principles and theories of science first-hand as a group led by their engineer or geoscientist mentors online. This interschool event is organized by Engineers and Geoscientists BC to celebrate all things STEM and inspire future generations of engineers and geoscientists. We are the regulatory body for engineers and geoscientists practising in BC.

Science Games aims to provide a fun, engaging environment where students are empowered to showcase their science talent, encouraged to explore their interests in science, and grow confident in their own scientific abilities. This interactive event hosted online through live sessions on Zoom gives students the chance to investigate the ways science affects their everyday lives.

Through fun, interactive activities and weekly challenges, a collective pod of students experienced aspects of science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) through the eyes of their engineer or geoscience mentors. Diving deep into the world of innovation, participants connected with other like-minded students and work together online to create their own solutions during each Saturday Activity Session.

In addition to the Saturday Activity Sessions, Engineers and Geoscientists BC will also be organizing more “Meet an Expert” sessions. These sessions will provide Science Games participants in classrooms and beyond with the opportunity to meet industry professionals in different disciplines of engineering and geoscience. Each expert will host a Q&A session and talk about what they do as an engineer or geoscientist.
