Before I tell you about today’s occurrences, I need to take you back I week or so.
I was mulling over some ideas as to how I could ensure my institute of education could thrive in the games, and then it hit me – we could devote the day to competing!
The day was filled with a miscellaneous array of fun surprises. After two hours of competing, everyone was treated to brownies. Then, after a short break, we competed some more and found that five people from our school had made the Hall of Fame – great job guys! Then, to keep our spirits up, our music teacher went around and got the classrooms to sing a round of “Me, Me Energy!” We finished the day competing against mathletes all around the world. What a great day!
My personal favorite part was clicking the “GO” button at the same time as my compatriots and seeing if we would play each other. What part of the games did YOU love the most? Comment below!

Hello everybody this is Kaya from Team Australia!
WOW what an intense competition this is turning out to be!
The scores are so close and there are a lot of talented spellers and matheletes out there. I have finished my games for World Spelling Day and thought my score was quite good but there are so many other great spellers out there with fantastic scores that have amazed me. Level 5 in the 14-18 age group is a killer but such a great challenge!
World Maths Day has been very close too with a tight competition under way. I’m looking forward to the challenge of World Science Day as it’s so much fun to play.
I’d like to congratulate everyone on their amazing efforts so far and wish everyone luck in all 3 competitions!
I’m so glad that all three World Education Games are here. It is the funnest thing on the computer. Our computer teacher wants all of us to win something and I have already won a lot. I hope they add a new subject next year like ‘World English Day’. Now that would be fun! I love World Science, Math, and Spelling Day because it makes those subjects so much funner than they are in class.
Let the games begin because I want the USA to win all the trophies this year, thats right!
GO USA! GO USA! GO USA! GO USA! GO USA!!!!!!!
This is Kaya from Team Australia,
It seems that the World Education Games have finally started and I am just as excited as you all. World Spelling Day has kicked off with some amazing spellers climbing their way up the ladders. Tonight World Maths Day begins, so guys get your fingers ready for some intense tapping. For all those people who haven’t practiced yet for the science competition, I suggest you start because not only is it challenging but it extremely fun.
Good luck to everybody competing in the World Education Games and have fun learning!
Team Australia Ambassador
Hello to all WEG participants! I am very excited about the upcoming games, and I hope you are too! Thursday, February 16th I was flown to Calgary, where I met the other four Canadian Ambassadors and went to the head office of 3P Learning, which was very exciting. We had a briefing on our duties as Ambassador, filmed some promotional videos, listened to a special guest speaker, and visited a very awesome sports school. We also got to ride in a limo, be on the news, have our meals together, and, because Samsung is sponsoring WEG, we all received Samsung Galaxy Tablets.
Back at home, I sent a letter to the mayor of Lloydminster, who kindly responded. I am going to meet with him to talk about WEG. I am looking forward to our meeting. I also sent letters to the Saskatchewan Minister of Education, the Premier of Saskatchewan, and the Prime Minister of Canada. I have also made presentations to the staff of my school as well as another in my school division. They are also excited about WEG. I am working on hanging posters all around my city to get the word out to all people that WEG is very fun and unique.
I can’t believe that last year WEG set a Guinness World Record for most people competing online at once, with over 1 MILLION students competing at the same time. Also last year we had 5.5 million people register from over 230 different countries and nations. So far this year, we have 4 million people registered, and we’re hoping to beat last year’s total. I hope that we’ll be able to pull together and beat our Mathometer record, our Spellometer record, and set a great Sciometer record. My personal goal this year is to crack the top ten in World Math Day. Last year, I placed 43rd, and in 2010 I placed 54th. I hope you keep practicing, and GOOD LUCK!!
To be chosen to represent Canada as part of the World Education Games 2012 and to be in charge of telling information to many people as possible about this coming event is an honor and privilege. As an Ambassador, the two days Calgary trip was a very memorable and great experience. I enjoyed the flight going to Calgary where we saw the vast rocky ice mountains. Upon our arrival at the airport, 3P Learning Staff gave us a warm welcome. It was also a pleasure meeting other Ambassadors. The white hat ceremony at the meeting place C at the “horses” in the airport was something to remember. The hats given us were so nice and cool. Afterwards, I could not imagine myself riding in a special car, the Limousine. For the first time in my life, I was able to ride in such a car for being an Ambassador.
In the afternoon, I was very excited to see one of the prestigious school in Calgary, “The EDGE”. We had a World Education Games presentation to the students and teachers. We made them aware of the Mathletics, the WEG and the School in a Box. It was a very short presentation but we had a great time shaking the hands of all the students there.
The first day ended with a dinner at the “Old Spaghetti Factory”. Every Ambassador gave a short speech. I never expected to receive a special award like a “tablet”. Thank you SAMSUNG for sponsoring such award!
The second day was more exciting when we appeared on CTV, a famous television network. It was great being on TV promoting the World Education Games over Canada and the world.
Then, we moved to the 3P Office where we spent the rest of the time for the Ambassador briefing and the pack presentation and most of all, the videos and the interviews. After all the business activities, we had a fun strolling around the park nearby .
After all the fun, it was time to go home. We ended up with all the hugs and goodbyes from the lovely and accommodating Staff of 3P Learning and Ambassadors. Again, the limousine took us to the airport for our travel back home. Thank you so much for the two days trip. Indeed, what a very awesome and wonderful experience for an Ambassador.
