Every year teams from high schools across British Columbia will compete for medals in 6 science events, and the school of the team with the highest overall score will receive a trophy and other awards.
The team from a school for a given event is nominally 5 students, but different students can participate in different events, and fewer than 5 students is also OK. So the team from a school could be from 1 to 30 students.
While every school team must have a “coach” on the day of the competition, we do not require that the “coach” be the physics teacher for the school. Any adult is OK, including student teachers, parents, administrators, or friends.
