Michael Smith Science Challenge
The Michael Smith Science Challenge is a national competition written by
students in Grade 10 Science or lower. It emphasizes logical thinking, and
covers material in the science curriculum common to all provinces.
It is named in honour of UBC's Nobel Prize Winner Dr. Michael Smith, and is sponsored by the
UBC faculty of Science and NSERC PromoScience.
Prizes are awarded to the top students (and their teachers) in each province and nationally.
The next official writing day is
