SCWIST x Science World STEM Quiz: Halloween Edition

October 24, 2020, 2020

Event Navigation

Spooky and nerdy family fun! This is the year’s ultimate Science, Tech, Engineering and Maths quiz!

During the pandemic, the miles apart don’t matter because we can all be safe, having fun together over the internet.

Shout outs for most right answers and for contestants furthest from Vancouver. And also the team with the best Halloween costumes, of course!

All monies raised go to support Vancouver’s famous Science World to help this great resource survive these lean times.

Fun for all ages. So, put on your thinking caps and get your virtual buzzers ready.

*Contestants may participate as an individual or as a team. Questions will be designed for kids and adults 9 years and older. In the event of a dispute, SCWIST reserves the right to determine and declare the winners. Decisions by SCWIST are final.
