The 2018 Spellman High Voltage Electronics Clean Tech Competition is here! Challenge your students to “Solve Climate Change” Registration is open! Win up to $10,000!
Climate change is real, the effects are far-reaching and the consequences will be devastating if nothing is done to mitigate them. It will be the next generation of scientific minds to create the idea or find the solution that will mitigate the effects of the human-changed climate. So, how can you get your students help?
Registration is open and waiting for the students of President-Elect! 2017 saw 26 different nations sign teams 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. So far nine different nations have signed up teams: France, Indonesia, Moldova, Jamaica, Egypt, Spain, Singapore, Canada and the United States. The long relationship of Clean Tech and the nation of Singapore is long and welcoming, many teams have been Finalists and Semi-Finalists, winners too! This is a wonderful opportunity for the high school students in New Jersey to show the world they’re capable of changing it for the better! I want this to be an opportunity for any high school students that New Jersey Science Teachers Association serves to show their knowledge and passion for STEM to the world as we try to solve the very real issue the 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 any eligible high school students of New Jersey to participate in this year’s competition! Now is the time to tell your teachers and spread the word to the students so they can gather their teams and get ready to register! There is no limit to the number of teams per school/ organization and I hope to see many registrations thanks to New Jersey Science Teachers Association! I hope that in your position, you can help get this information to the students your organization serves.
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 2018 Challenge: “Solving Climate Change” asks students to develop a clean technology solution to the many problems associate with climate change.
Teams consist of 1-3 students, are assisted by a Team Leader (i.e. parent, teacher, or mentor), to develop a written proposal.
No limit to the number of teams per school/organization!
To help bring the Clean Tech Competition to your organization’s students, we ask that you share information about this opportunity with students, fellow educators, and parents. Feel free to distribute the following informational documents:
If you have any questions regarding the competition details, or how to incorporate the competition into your curriculum, please contact us. We look forward to having participants representing New Jersey in the Clean Tech Competition this year and in years to come!
