Now is the time to help solve our environmental issues. Now is the time for the youth to take control of not only our global future but their own future as well.
The Clean Tech Competition is an international research and design challenge for 15-18-year-old pre-university students. It is a way for students to test their ideas against both a global issue, as well as competitors with very different experiences than their own. There are so many unique situations, and we want as many addressed as possible.
Competition Information: 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.
The 2019 Challenge: “Toward A Greener Tomorrow” asks students to develop a clean technology solution to make our future more sustainable than our past
