BYJU'S Coding World Cup is a soccer-themed coding competition created by Tynker and designed to get kids excited about computer science. Students use logic and coding skills to write their own custom logic (AI) using visual programming blocks.

Mathematica Contests  (Mathematica Centrum) - Grades 3-8

Mathematica contests are developed annually by the Mathematica Contest Center and written by over 60,000 students across Canada.

Beaver Computing Challenge (University of Waterloo)  - Grades 3-8

Gauss Mathematics Contest (University of Waterloo) - Grades 7-8

The Gauss contests introduce students in Grades 7 and 8 to a broader perspective of mathematics in a fun, accessible way. Intriguing problems and a multiple-choice format make the Gauss contests a wonderful opportunity for all participants to grow their interest in and get curious about the power of math.

Students in Grade 6-8 participate in the Frontenac, Lennox and Addington Science Fair.


Grade 5 students join the 6-8 students in our own King's Town School Science Fair. In doing so, students work through each step of the scientific method to gain comfort with scientific terminology and how to conduct a proper experiment.


Students in Grade 5, 7-8 participate in our King's Town School Heritage fair and have the opportunity to present their projects at the Kingston Regional Heritage Fair.

Congratulations to our 2023 Award Winners!
