About Boost your Power Smarts

This past October, we challenged grade 4 to 7 classrooms across the province to test their power smarts with a weekly electricity-themed video quiz.

For completing the quiz, teams were entered into weekly draws for a chance to win education resources and games. The teams with the highest overall score at the end of October were entered into a grand prize draw for a school visit from BC Hydro and Science World.
