On May 7th, the University of Guelph welcomed its campus to over 700 high school students from across Ontario for the annual Science Olympics.

Students spent the day competing for Gold, Silver, and Bronze medals by completing exciting and creative challenges in Computing, Agriculture, Math, Engineering, Chemistry,  Biology, Environmental Science, Physics, Nanoscience and Geography.

The School of Computer Science put our CyberHunt challenge to the test to over 160 high school students. Our challenge is an online activity in the form of a scavenger hunt, that focuses on gathering information from web sites to answer questions. This hunt is a info-finding exercise where you will find answers to questions and solve problems as you practice investigative searching and information seeking skills.  As you solve one question, another will be generated, getting more challenging as you go. Get ready to test your technology know-how and digital information finding skills through the effective use of search engines. Can you beat the clock?
