The competition can be completed in lesson time, as an extra-curricular activity (during break and/or lunch) or set as a fun homework challenge.
Students will be able to access all of the competition activities when the event begins. They can complete these either via the EP app, or through the Education Perfect platform on Google Chrome.
Students will get points for every question correctly answered, regardless of question difficulty or topic, making this an inclusive event.
How can I support my students?
The best way to support your students is to familiarise them with the EP platform before the event, and to cheer them on during the event!
Students can independently access and complete Expo activities during the event - but will also earn points for any teacher-assigned tasks. Thus, you can choose whether to direct students to particular activities, or let them choose the content they wish to complete for the competition.
