How It Works

This year we are accepting 8 NAIT students, 4 U of A students, 8 SAIT students and 4 U of C students. Students will be divided into 8 teams of 3. Competitors will be provided with training on the Friday and then teams will be presented with technical challenges that they need to solve on Saturday. 

We've got you covered!

Out of town students will be housed for three evenings at the Comfort Inn. Breakfast, lunch and dinner will be provided for all participants and representatives. City of Edmonton bus passes will also be provided as needed.
