Complete the online Info Clinic mini-course to learn about the challenge. Feel free to go at your own pace. Team members and advisers learn about the challenge and its rules. Attend a virtual Q&A Session to ask questions of engineers who designed the challenge. You must review the online course before attending our virtual Q&A session with the head judges.
These 30 minute virtual workshops let students dive deep into the engineering design process. Participants will develop brainstorming, presentation, design, building and testing skills, and learn how to innovate through failure. Teams will be able to ask questions of our staff and then work on their own at home to finish their designs. They can then submit their designs for feedback. Pre-registration required.
Advisers: You should attend an info clinic before you attend adviser training.
