About this event

Individual competitors are asked to deliver a 10-minute presentation on a technical topic followed by a 5-minute question and answer period.  The presentation can be based on a co-op experience, a research project, or an internship if desired, but any topic in a science or engineering field is welcome.

The emphasis is to develop participants’ presentation skills (75% of the evaluation) with a lesser focus on the technical content (25% of the evaluation), enabling competitors through various levels of studies or careers to participate on equal footing.

The presentations are delivered in front of a panel of judges as well as an audience.
Presentations are given through three different competition rounds - university, regional, and global. Winners at each level proceed onwards.  There are cash prizes to be won at each stage and all expenses paid travel for competitors at the regional and global levels.


7:00 light refreshments and competition begins
