Leadership Opportunities

Do you know a student who is looking for leadership opportunities? Leading a BC Green Games project can help students develop essential skills such as:

  • Executive functioning (planning, organization, execution and completion of projects, decision making, self-monitoring)
  • Social skills (cooperation with others, communication, resolution skills)
  • Technological skills (video or photo editing, webpage design)

As well as empowering them to be environmental stewards in their community.

Check out some examples in the Galleries.

 

Science World's On The Road

BC Green Games has teamed up with Science World's On the Roadprogram to offer another great science opportunity for schools outside the Lower Mainland! 

Every school outside the Lower Mainland who submits a project will be entered in a draw to have the On The Road team come visit their school and deliver a high-energy, curriculum-linked presentation that will provide an unforgettable science experience for your students.
