Science Challenge New competition for high school students

We are looking for high school teams that have the courage to innovate laser research!

Science Challenge

From November 8th, 2021, teams of three have the opportunity to participate in the upcoming online round of the Science Challenge. During this part of the challenge, students will create the most effective program to automate laser systems that could find applications industry. Students will tackle a lot of new information in the areas of programming, optics, physics and most importantly teamwork in a group of enthusiasts. At the beginning of next year, the very best ones will participate in a 24-hour final right at the laser centres. That’s where we will add hardware to the programming, so screwdriver, lenses and lasers! Please note: the previous December final date has been postponed due to the epidemic situation.

Team Profile: Team: 1 teacher as mentor + 3 high school students aged 15-19.
