2024 registrations open

Registration Deadline: 01 July 2024

Teachers/Parents/Guardians need to register an account showing their teams interest by midnight 01 July 2024. Once registered, Teachers/Parents/Guardians can submit student project details and upload documentation associated with the project. Multiple submissions can be made and each project must be uploaded as a separate submission.

Project Documentation and Submission Deadline: 31 July 2024

This is the final day for project report submissions details, including team member names and year group level, a project description, pictures of the  project and other relevant information can be uploaded. Project documentation can be uploaded as a word document or pdf file, if you have multiple files per project please save these into a zip folder for uploading.

Please note: You can complete the project report submission process at any stage from the launch in February until the submission deadline, but you will need to have registered by the registration deadline to be able to complete the submission process. 

After submissions close, an assessment panel will review all the project documentation submitted and we will schedule virtual judging rounds with each school/entering organisation. Entrants are able to continue developing and fine tuning their projects right up until the virtual judging review.
