The World Education Games are back

3P Learning’s free online global gaming event for schools and students returns for another year

Calling all teachers – it’s time to pre-register for this year’s World Education Games, an exciting, free-to-enter global online event for schools and students all over the world, organised by 3P Learning, award-winning, global leaders in digital curriculum  resources, and supported by children’s charity UNICEF. 

The World Education Games is the expanded format of what was once World Maths Day and now includes World Literacy Day and World Science Day. It is the world’s largest online educational competition with over five million school students aged 4-18 from over 200 countries and territories around the world participating when it was last held in 2013.

Now a biennial event, the Games are returning 13-15 October 2015 with some exciting new features – see  for more information and to pre-register your interest.  

You will then be kept up to date with all the latest news regarding the games, including a reminder when the new website opens. Once registered there, pupils can practice for the competition by sharpening their maths, science and spelling skills in a variety of online ‘warm up’ activities. 

The three-day competition will test students in a variety of friendly 60-second online games against the clock in spelling (World Literacy Day – October 13), maths (World Maths Day – October 14) and science (World Science Day – October 15). There are five different levels to play and 20 games on each level. 

Full registrations and warm up for the Games will open in September 2015, so be sure to put these dates in your school’s calendar. Students who win their regional lead-up events in their countries are usually invited to become Ambassadors for that country. 

Jayne Warburton, CEO at 3P Learning said, “We are delighted to announce the return of these hugely popular World Education Games, which unite the world in learning. Our innovative digital learning resources are already helping schools all over the UK to make learning fun and engaging to improve educational outcomes. The aim of these games is to get children as excited about their education as they are about their sports and we’ll be announcing some fantastic celebrity ambassadors over the coming months.’
