The 2018 Spellman High Voltage Electronics

Challenge your students to “Solve Climate Change”

Win up to $10,000!
Dear Michelle Kretzschmar,
Registration for the 2018 Spellman High Voltage Electronics Clean Tech Competition is open and waiting for your students! In 2017, 26 different nations had teams sign up to be a part of the Competition and with your help, we can continue to grow that number in 2018; in fact we already have two nations submit teams! This is a wonderful opportunity for the high school students of San Antonio Home Education to showcase their knowledge and passion for STEM to solve a very real issue the entire world is facing: Climate Change.
The Clean Tech Competition is an international research and design challenge for 15-18 year old pre-university students. This is an educational opportunity for students across the world that challenges students to be innovative while encouraging their passion for the sciences and we want the students of Texas to participate in this year’s competition! Now is the time to tell your teachers and spreading the word to the students so they can gather their teams and get ready to register! There is no limit to the amount of teams per school/organization and I hope to see many registrations from San Antonio Home Education.
Each year, the Spellman High Voltage Electronics Clean Tech Competition 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 many problems associate with climate change.
- Teams consist of 1-3 students, are assisted by a Team Leader (i.e. parent, teacher, or mentor), to develop a written proposal.
