Registration for the 2018 Spellman High Voltage Electronics Clean Tech Competition is open and waiting for your students.
2017 saw 26 different nations had teams sign up to be a part of the Competition and with your help, we can continue to grow that number in 2018, but we can’t do it alone.
This is a wonderful opportunity for the high school students that Irish Science Teachers’ Association serves to showcase their knowledge and passion for STEM to solve a very real issue the entire world is facing: Climate Change.
The Clean Tech Competition is an international research and design challenge for 15-18 year old pre-university students. This is an educational opportunity for students across the world that challenges students to be innovative while encouraging their passion for the sciences and we want the students of Ireland to participate in this year’s competition! There is no limit to the number of teams per school.
Each year, the Spellman High Voltage Electronics Clean Tech Competition encourages scientific understanding of real-world issues and the integration of environmentally responsible energy sources.
