Watts Off Energy Challenge

This challenge has been designed specifically with Grade 6 energy curriculum outcomes in mind. If you choose to participate, you will be competing against other classes across Nova Scotia to complete energy activities, gain points and hopefully win the grand prize!

  • Each week has a specific energy-related theme and corresponding activities
  • For everything you complete, your class earns points! Assignments and points are tracked every week. 
  • The class with the top points at the end of the 6 weeks wins the grand prize. Participating classes may each get a cool prize as well, just for taking part!
