Science Games 2022 – Going Virtual

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 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.

  • Division 1 (Grades 1–3) activities will be held from 10:00 AM–12:00 PM on Saturday February 26, March 5, and March 12, 2022
  • Division 2 (Grades 4–6) activities will be held from 1:00 PM–3:00 PM on Saturday February 26, March 5, and March 12, 2022

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 to the weekly challenges.

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.
