Engineers and Geoscientists BC is celebrating all things science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) and inspiring future generations of engineers and geoscientists at our 10th annual Science Games competition. This online event will take place over Zoom and encourage students in Grades 1 through 6 to explore the principles and theories of science while providing a fun and engaging environment for students to grow their confidence and abilities.
Through fun, interactive activities and weekly challenges, a collective pod of students will experience STEM through the eyes of their engineering or geoscience mentor. Diving deep into the world of innovation, participants will connect with other like-minded students and work together to create solutions to weekly challenges.
The 4-week science journey begins in March 2021 and is now open for registration. Every week, students will be sent an email with the week's theme, a list of suggested materials, and mini activities to prepare for the Saturday live session. All activities will use materials that are easily accessible from home, school, or a local dollar store. The live event sessions will be on March 6, 13, 20, and 27.
New to Science Games this year is the “Meet an Expert” sessions, which will provide Science Games participants with the opportunity to meet industry professionals in different disciplines of engineering and geoscience. Each expert, a registrant of Engineers and Geoscientists BC, will host a Q&A session and demonstrate and talk about what they do as an engineer or geoscientist.
Engineers and Geoscientists BC is looking for passionate engineers and geoscientists who are interested in volunteering to help with the Science Games experience. Volunteers will mentor a group of students and lead them through a 4-week science journey through Zoom. As a Science Games mentor, you will showcase all the fun and cool aspects of your role as an engineer or geoscientist, and encourage students to build confidence and interest in science!
