Let the education games begin!

Schools are being invited to pre-register for this year’s World Education Games, a global online competition.

The free-to-enter event is the expanded format of what was once World Maths Day and now includes World Literacy Day and World Science Day.

In 2013, more than five million school students – aged 4 to 18 and representing more than 200 countries around the world – participated, and the competition will run again this year from October 13 to 15.

Pupils battle against the clock, over a period of three days, in a variety of 60-second online games in spelling, maths and science. There are five different levels to play and 20 games on each level.

Jayne Warburton, chief executive at competition organisers 3P Learning, said: “The aim of these games is to get children as excited about their education as they are about their sports, and we will be announcing some fantastic celebrity ambassadors over the coming months.”

Full registrations will open in September, and warm-up programmes will be available the same month.
