Registration for the 2017 Clean Tech Competition has only been open for three weeks and in that two weeks we have had 50 different teams from eight different nations sign up! We want to get the word to the students and teachers that the Science Teachers Association of Manitoba serves.

The Clean Tech Competition is an international research and design challenge for 15-18 year old pre-university students. This is a prestigious educational opportunity for students across the world that challenges students to be innovative while encouraging their passion for the sciences and we want to invite the students of your school to participate in this year’s competition!

2016 saw the largest competition ever and Clean Tech continues to grow! There were 392 teams from 19 different countries participated with almost 1,000 total students participating. Along with the 19 countries, the final round had four different nations represented and competing for first prize! And at this rate of registration and your help Principal it will only continue to get bigger!
