Spellman High Voltage Electronics Clean Tech Competition

Spellman High Voltage Electronics Clean Tech Competition

2020 Theme: “Reducing Individual Impacts"

Registration Open October 15!


The Clean Tech Competition is back, and we are incredibly excited for our 9th annual event! 2019 saw teams from 40 countries compete, with representatives from Zimbabwe, China, the United States, Philippines, Singapore and Italy joining us in New York City, vying for the honor of Clean Tech Winner! This international research and design challenge for 15-18 year old pre-university student’s challenges teams to be as innovative as possible as they look to create a sustainable solution to our future. It is the perfect way to combine a love for science with a commitment to civic duty!

To us, this year’s theme encapsulates the struggle we all go through daily; one where it feels like you as an individual are unable to do much in the grand scheme of things, but you wish to make a difference. This year we are looking to our competitors to help us answer this existential question. But as we know, this struggle can vary deeply all over the world, depending on the means your community has. Which leads us to our categories:

Limited Resources

Abundant Resources

We want students to research a specific area and challenge, then propose something that individuals can do to reduce their footprint and solve that challenge, based on having limited or an excess of resources. There are quite literally a world of problems out there we can solve, making the possibilities for your students almost endless. Challenge them today to make that difference!
