1. Teams from public, private, and home schools may participate. If necessary, the team may be made by combining students across multiple schools.
  2. Teams consist of 3-12 students. Each school may register any number of teams. An individual student may participate on only one team.
  3. Teams will enter in either the Junior Division (5th-8th grade) or the Senior Division (9th-12th grade). Each division will be judged separately following the same process. If a single team has students spanning both grade divisions, that team must enter the Senior Division.
  4. Each team may wish to seek the assistance of a mentor along with the help of a teacher or coach. This mentor could be a technical professional or post-secondary student with an engineering or science background. The mentor can provide technical leadership and assistance as needed.
