About Boost your Power Smarts

This October, spark excitement in your class and compete for awesome prizes by taking part in our Boost your Power Smarts quiz competition. 

We're challenging grade 4 to 7 classrooms across the province to test their power smarts with a weekly electricity-themed video quiz.

Last year, "Blakey's Lightning Minds" from Cayoosh Elementary in Lillooet were the lucky grand prize winners. Now's your team's chance to claim the top spot and win the grand prize this fall.

Boost your Power Smarts starts on October 1. Every Tuesday, a new quiz will be available at 8:00am PST and your class has until Thursday 3:00pm PST of that week to complete it. 

All you need for your “team” to take part is an internet connection, a screen, and a Power Smart for Schools account. Each quiz has 10 multiple-choice questions and every quiz your class completes is a new chance to win some awesome prizes.

To help your class prep for the quizzes, we’ve set you up with curriculum-connected teaching resources that explore forms of energy, different energy sources around the globe, electric vehicles, and conservation. By using fun games, group work, worksheets and quizzes, Boost your Power Smarts is your tool to inspire energy education.

Great prizes
