Who can participate and how?

You can participate in teams (from 2 to 6 students) in three categories:

  • (i) 2nd, 3rd y 4th year of Secondary Education
  • (ii) High School
  • (iii) Medium or higer level of Vocational Training

Each team will design and develop a project related to telecommunication engineering and the Goal 3. You can use the materials provided by the EET for this purpose (kits of programmable boards compatible with the Arduino IDE). Communications (e.g., 5G, LoRaWAN, WiFi, Bluetooth, etc.) must be included in the project. Participation of more than one team per center will be allowed; the maximum number will be specified when the registration period ends, and it will depend on the total number of teams that register.

If you are a high school student, you can also participate individually.

In this case, a set of problems related to telecommunication engineering must be solved. The main focus falls upon the smart use of physico-mathematical tools adequate to the expected level of the students.

What will be the reward?

Apart from experience and prizes, only for participating, you get:

  • A kit with programmable plates compatible with Arduino IDE for your centre.
  • We offer you training on Arduino programming in January.

Competition phases and prizes

The competition will have two phases:

1st Classification phase

A competition between the teams registered in the EET UVIGO will take place:

  • April 25th: Secondary Education teams
  • April 26th: Vocational Training and High School teams
  • April 27th: Individual High School

In the team competition, you will have from January to work on your project. In each category, 4 awards will be presented:

  • Award for the Best Technical Proposal:
    • 400 € for the High School, and
    • 400 € for the team
  • Award for the most original proposal:
    • 300 € for the team
  • Award for the closest approach to the Goal 3:
    • 200 € for the team

In the individual competition, 3 awards will be given:

  • First prize: 400 €
  • Second prize: 300 €
  • Third prize: 200 €

2nd National phase

The best projects pass directly to the national competition, which will take place in May 2024.

Four prizes will be awarded, the amount of which will depend on the sponsors:

  • Best technical proposal.
  • Most original proposal.
  • Closest approach to the Goal 3.
  • Best communication and presentation of the project.
