Prizes of up to $10,000 to USA, Canada, and International teams of pre-college youth (ages 15-18) for a design and research challenge using clean technology. Teams must register before the competition. The categories for this year's competition are: mitigating the effects of climate change and resource preservation. The objective of the competition is for teams of eligible students, supervised by teachers or other adults, to create a competition entry that identifies a real world problem and presents a solution using clean technology.
The Clean Tech Competition is a unique, worldwide research and design challenge for pre-college youth. The program encourages scientific understanding of real-world issues and the integration of environmentally responsible energy sources. Each year, the Clean Tech Competition addresses an issue that is grounded in core technological competency areas and focuses on the next great engineering challenges. The competition is designed to foster a deeper understanding of STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) related concepts, recognize outstanding talent, and prepare the next generation of globally competitive innovators.
For the 2019 competition, those categories will be: Mitigating the Effects of Climate Change and Resource Preservation. Together, these topics deal with a wide range of environmental issues affecting the planet, and how we can handle them.
The challenge is to identify a specific issue, analyze then explain in detail, and design a solution using clean technology that can mitigate the negative impacts of climate change.
