APEGA Science Olympics Curriculum Competition | APEGA

APEGA Science Olympics Curriculum Competition

The APEGA Science Olympics expose students to amazing and innovative science, technology, engineering, and math applications that impact their daily lives. We present these concepts through hands-on challenges that excite and inspire Alberta’s youth.

Who better to inspire youth to pursue engineering and geoscience than the passionate professionals working in those fields? This year, we want to hear from you!

Do you have a creative project idea that will

  • excite students,
  • teach them about an engineering or geoscience topic, and
  • encourage them to develop their teamwork, communication, and creative problem-solving skills?

Tell us about it and it may be used as a project in an upcoming APEGA Science Olympics.
