BC Green Games: Science World's Eco-Storytelling Contest

BC Green Games are back!

BC Green Games is a digital eco-storytelling contest designed to closely link with BC's new curriculum while supporting teachers and promoting place-based environmental education. Our project-style contest offers teachers and students a 21st century learning opportunity in scientific exploration, storytelling, campaigning and policy development.

Teams document and share their green stories, win prizes, and celebrate their green achievements with other schools across the province!
