The 2012 Preliminary – Engineering Excellence Competition
The E2 Competition is designed to provide students with an opportunity to demonstrate their problem-solving skills, research and presentation skills, and their practical application of math, science and technology. The top 10 winners from each education level (elementary, middle and high school) from the Preliminary competition on February 4, 2012 will advance to the final round of competition on February 18, 2012.
Volunteers are needed to serve as Judges to evaluate each contestant’s project based on four categories: Essay, Poster Presentation, Table Display, and Interview. Judges will be emailed approximately 5 – 6 brief essays by contestants for review and grading prior to the competition. This will help to speed up the on-site judging process. We will need approximately 100 volunteer judges for the Preliminary competition and 25 for the Final.
General volunteers will assist in registration, serving refreshments and other duties as needed. Volunteers must be 16 and over.
Judges and volunteers will be given competition t-shirts.
Project topics include:
· Elementary School (Grades 3, 4, and 5) – Engineering and Energy
· Middle School (Grades 6, 7, and 8) - Engineering and Agriculture or Environment
· High School (Grades 9, 10, 11, and 12) - Engineering and Video Gaming
