Greendale elementary takes science to a new level

Greendale elementary was awarded a video camera by Sony Canada Ltd. to enhance its BC Green Games submission to Science World in February.

Greendale elementary has learned it pays to register early.

The Chilliwack school was one of six schools in B.C. to be awarded a Sony Handycam camcorder for being an early registrant in Science World’s BC Green Games.

Early registration prize winners were chosen by random selection.

“We’re excited to be able to give schools these video cameras thanks to our partnership with Sony,” said Bryan Tisdall, Science World’s president and CEO.

“We’re sure the cameras will come in handy as the students put together and document their BC Green Games projects.”

BC Green Games is a province-wide competition for students from kindergarten to Grade 12. The competition is designed to motivate action, enable sharing and reward and celebrate the green efforts of schools in BC.

To date, over 80 teams are registered this year.

The registration has been extended through to February to allow even more teams the opportunity to share their inspiring environmental action stories.

In March, the public will be asked to vote for their favourite submission at bcgreengames.ca. All submissions will also be judged by a panel of scientists along with environmental education and science education experts.

Submissions will be judged based on the following criteria: demonstration of environmental responsibility; a creative action plan; and clear communication about the project.

A total of $24,000 will be distributed to winning teams.
