Science World On The Road
BC Green Games has teamed up with Science World's On The Road Program to offer another great prize for schools outside of the lower mainland that share their Green Teams environmental action.
Every school outside the lower mainland that submits a project will be entered into a draw to have the On The Road Team come visit their school. The team delivers high-energy, curriculum-linked, and engaging science presentations that provide unforgettable experience for your students.
Learn more about the On The Road Program.
