Students ages 15-18 are invited to enter the 2018 Spellman High Voltage Electronics Clean Tech Competition, an international research and design challenge for pre-college students that 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 problems associated with climate change. Teams will consist of one to three students, are assisted by a team leader (such as a parent, teacher or mentor) and will develop a written proposal.

Ten finalist teams will receive $200 stipends and will be matched with a mentor to help them prepare a prototype presentation for the finalist event, where they will compete for a $10,000 grand prize and continued mentorship.

The registration deadline is March 16; the deadline for first-round paper submissions is April 13. Visit the Clean Tech Competition website for more information.
