Science Olympics in Kivalliq
Students in Kivalliq took part in the annual Science Olympics, also known as the Science and Engineering Technology (SET) Challenge in November. The SET Challenge is a collection of fun, concrete, thematic problems that require cooperation, communication and some science, engineering, and technology to construct a solution. SET Challenges also reinforce many of the core values of Inuit Qaujimajatuqangit (IQ). Over the years, SET themes have included: buoyancy, rockets, towers, motion, projectiles and eggs. The theme for the 2013 SET Challenge is Silainnaq (Outer Space) and each theme translates into five different age-appropriate events for Kindergarten to Grade 12 held throughout the month of October.Northern was proud to sponsor this event by providing T-shirts and medals for the students.
