Presented by the Oil Sands Discovery Centre and the APEGA Fort McMurray branch, the APEGA Science Olympics is an interactive engineering and geoscience event for students in Grades 7 to 9. Students are given a series of challenges that demonstrate the fun side of engineering and geoscience and show how these fields impact our everyday lives.
Students explore multiple areas of scientific study while working and interacting as a group. All challenges draw on Alberta school curricula and have been developed by a group comprising APEGA professional engineers and professional geoscientists as well as Alberta educators.
