Clean Tech Competition is here!

Challenge your students to “Solve Climate Change”

Can you believe it?! There are less than three weeks before registration closes for the 2018 Spellman High Voltage Electronics Clean Tech Competition!

How will you get your students involved in helping to Solve Climate Change?

As a member of Science Teachers Association of Manitoba, you help shape the young minds of your students, you help show them they can truly make a difference, to change the world for the better, to challenge them to be more than they think they are. It will be thanks to your help that we see students from United Kingdom.

The Spellman High Voltage Electronics Clean Tech Competition is one such challenge; an international research and design challenge for 15-18 year old pre-university students. This an educational opportunity for high school students across United Kingdom to be innovative while encouraging their passion for the sciences; we want all the eligible students to participate in this year’s competition!  But we can’t get the information out to all the students your organization serves by alone. If you have already disseminated this information to your teachers and students, you can stop reading, if not, please read on.


Registration is open and waiting for your students, but only until March 16th!


So far 25 different nations have signed up teams: the Bahamas, Bulgaria, Canada, China, Egypt, Ethiopia, Fiji, France, Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Ireland, Italy, Lesotho, Jamaica, Malaysia, Moldova, Oman, Pakistan, Singapore, South Africa, South Korea, Spain, Switzerland and the United States. High school students from Science Teachers Association of Manitoba are invited to take on the challenge and be a part of the Competition; with your help, more schools from your state will be represented! This is an incredible opportunity for the high school students from United Kingdom to show the world they’re capable of changing it for the better! As STEM educators, we know that students deserve a chance to show their knowledge and passion for STEM to the world especially as we try to solve the very real issue the world is facing: Climate Change. 


Do not let this opportunity for your students to pass by!

Now is the time to tell your teachers and students so they can gather their teams and register! They don’t have to submit their papers yet, but in order to be a part of the Competition, they must be registered before March 16. Late registrations will not be accepted. There is no limit to the number of teams per school/ organization either and I hope to see many registrations thanks to your efforts.
