Brain War is based on the STEM (science, technology, engineering, math) areas of study, and including the Arts (STEAM) as a testing component, it’s an ambitious, challenging competition designed to crown the smartest team in Nova Scotia. It’s not just about smarts – it’s a six-hour, intellectual, emotional and creative marathon. This event is one of the best team-building experiences you’ll ever experience. It’s all about quick decision-making, working together and leadership. See Mrs. Swimm in guidance if you are interested in enrolling.
