Registration for Clean Tech 2017 is open

2017 Clean Tech Competition

Challenge your students to “Create a Greener Future”

Win up to $10,000!

REGISTRATION IS NOW OPEN!

Registration is now open for the 2017 Clean Tech Competition, a global research and design challenge for 15-18 year old students. This year’s challenge is to “Create a Greener Future”.

This educational opportunity challenges students to develop innovative, clean technology solutions to real-world issues. Solutions may take on aspects of buildings, materials, and efficiency, indoor environmental quality and “sick buildings”, among other available topics. Student participants will gain experience with focused research, critical thinking, and the scientific process – making it a great project based learning opportunity.

There is no entry fee, and students can participate through school, extracurricular programs or, on their own. Total prizes awarded will be over $30,000 and the Finalist Event will be held on at Stony Brook University, New York!

There is no limit to the number of Teams per organization – so spread the word! Each stage of the competition is designed to be a rewarding process, and more student participation means inspiring more young scientists to help build a better future for our planet. We want students from Lane Tech College Prep in this year’s competition this year and for years to come.

“From young minds come fresh solutions”

CS @ University of Illinois

CS @ ILLINOIS Sail, which is coming up on April 9th.

Sail (formerly known as Splash) is a CS outreach program in which students will spend the day on campus at UIUC taking courses taught by current Illinois students. They can choose their own schedule, with classes ranging in subject from learning how to make their own website to general college advice and various silly courses. All meals will be provided on that day, and there will be transportation available from Woodfield Mall, Oakbrook Center, Buffalo Grove, Union Station, and Naperville.

Some of the example classes are

  • Quizditch: Harry Potter Trivia
  • Beyond the Books
  • How to Get a Job in the CS Industry
  • Intro to Android Reverse Engineering
  • Computer Vision: It looks Magical but It’s Not Magic

… and a whole bunch more!

Please help us spread the word and encourage your students to register at http://sail.cs.illinois.edu.

Classes are first come first serve, so signup now. Also, RSVP at https://www.facebook.com/events/901174483333173/ .

We’re excited to host them and hope that they’ll take this opportunity to explore our campus and get a taste of CS @ ILLINOIS, while meeting other high school students interested in STEM and current Illinois students.
