STEMFest Engineering Olympics

Open to students in grades 4 to 9

The STEMFest Engineering Olympics, presented by Engineers Nova Scotia, is an interactive engineering event for students in grades 4 to 9. Students are given a series of problem-solving challenges that demonstrate the fun side of engineering, and allow students to see first-hand how this field impacts our everyday lives.

The STEMFest Engineering Olympics provides students the opportunity to cover many areas of engineering study while learning to work and interact within a group. Teams will use their skills and innovative ideas to develop creative solutions to various challenges throughout the afternoon. All challenges have been coordinated by Engineers Nova Scotia.

Each team consists of four to six students and one coach (teacher/chaperone/parent). Each team must have a coach who supports them at the event. Participants will register in divisions I or II, depending on their grade. Grades 4-6 students will be in division I and grades 7-9 students will be in division II. Teams will be given a score for each challenge. Each division will have bronze, silver, and gold recognition.

Spectators are welcome. Bring someone to watch and cheer for your team. Space is limited, and is available on a first come, first served bases. Cost to register is $20 per team. If cost is an issue please email us.
