Normally, when Teams are presenting their research and prototype to the judges they are in a small room. It is just them, the judges, their poster and prototype as they enter the Final stages of the Competition. Unfortunately this year the judges and Teams will be hundreds or thousands of miles apart, interacting through a webcam and screen. Not the intimate experience that we always strive for, but in times like these you find exciting new ways to utilize what you have!
For the 2020 Spellman HV Clean Tech Competition Finals, the Competition has decided that we will be live streaming each judging presentation for all to witness! More information will be coming soon, but for now mark off Thursday August 6, 2020 on your calendar as the date of our Virtual Finals that you can watch!
The old saying “make lemonade out of lemons” could not be better applied than here. Two months ago we had a whole host of questions on how the event would run this year. Now we still have questions, but they are focused on exciting new pathways! Science is all about sharing and openness, and in a digital age we are able to take this to a whole new level. We hope you can join us for this one-of-a-kind event from any corner of the globe!
