Why get involved?

The Discovery Centre’s annual Brain War competition has earned its reputation as one of Atlantic Canada’s  most unique platforms for the advancement of STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts, math) education.

The first and only event of its kind in the region, Brain War brings together more than 200 high school students, post-secondary students and members of the corporate community for the ultimate test of whole brain supremacy!

Why we do it?

As a legacy fundraising event, Brain War is built on the power of its volunteers with more than 50 volunteers joining us to support our STEAM-themed challenges and ensure an unforgettable experience from start to finish. With all proceeds directly supporting our educational programming and exhibits, Brain War is a key event in enabling  the Discovery Centre to fulfil its mission “to bring STEAM to life through fun, interactive learning experiences.”

The Discovery Centre develops and delivers innovative educational programs to more than 10,000 students across the province both in the centre and in the classroom. In addition to our own interactive STEAM exhibits, we bring some of the world’s latest and most forward-thinking exhibitions to the Discovery Centre for extended stays three to four times a year. Brain War helps us to accomplish all of this and more as we continue to inspire a sense of wonder, imagination and a lifelong pursuit of STEAM learning.
