After delays and adjustments in the face of a global pandemic, we have begun our judging! Last week hundreds of paper submissions were sent to dozens of engineers, professors and researchers across the globe to be scored. From here, we will narrow it down to our top Teams! First on June 5th we will be announcing our semi-finalists, so keep an eye on your email and our social media! Then that very next Monday, our Finalists will be announced on June 8th! These top 20 Teams will compete in our first ever Virtual Finals in early August. The Competition date will be announced very soon, that I promise you!
Presenting your research to a Team of judges is already a challenge. You may know your work better than anyone, but sharing that knowledge can often be difficult! Now, Teams will need to overcome the added challenge of doing so in a virtual format over video. Our 2020 Competitors have all had to overcome a disrupted research plan, so hats off to each and every one of them!
