by eklund on Nov.05, 2015, under Uncategorized

The second workshop will take place on November 14th from 9:00 am to noon in the Energy Research Centre (same location as the previous workshop).

The competition table will be set up and available for testing. We will also be giving the referees a chance to practice, and there will be a teachers meeting to finalize and tweaks on the rules, etc.

Please note that we do require the Team Member Registrations by that day (or very shortly thereafter) so that we can order T-Shirts, etc. Here is a quick link to the form.

As well we do hope to have all the photo release forms submitted by then. Any students under 18 do require a parent’s or guardian’s signature. These can also be mailed or scanned and emailed.
