There is currently a worldwide push to make math and science (and spelling, too) super cool!
It’s happening as a result of The World Education Games – The online competition that is uniting global kids through the love of learning.
The World Education Games is an exciting and FREE event for all schools and students, (including homeschoolers), ages 4-18, around the world. It takes place from March 6 through March 8 and involves approximately 5.5 million students from over 200 countries and territories!
The three-day global competition will test students in a variety of online games set against the clock. Students will compete in friendly, 60 second competitions of math, spelling, and science. There are 5 different levels of play, and 20 games on each level.
The philosophy behind the event is to get children around the world as excited about education as some do about sports.
Students must register on the website. Once kids are registered, they can practice for the competition by sharpening their math, science and spelling skills online.
World Spelling Day takes place on March 6th, followed by World Math(s) Day on March 7th, and World Science Day on March 8th. On March 23rd, there will be award presentations at participating schools.
The students who answer the most questions correctly in each age group are eligible for medals, cups and/or commemorative certificates.
