Competition to Design Environmentally Responsible Solutions to Energy Challenges
The Clean Tech Competition is a worldwide research and design challenge for precollege youth. The program encourages scientific understanding of real-world issues and the integration of environmentally responsible energy sources. Each year the Clean Tech Competition addresses an issue that is grounded in core technological competency areas and focuses on the next great engineering challenges. The competition is designed to foster a deeper understanding of STEM-related concepts, recognize outstanding talent, and prepare the next generation of globally competitive innovators. The competition’s theme in 2021 is Preserving Planet Earth. The grand-prize winner will receive $10,000, as well as the opportunity to develop and continue a relationship with a mentor. In addition, ten finalists will receive monetary awards. The Clean Tech Competition is a program of the Center for Science Teaching and Learning, a nonprofit science education organization situated on Tanglewood Preserve, on Long Island, New York. The organization is dedicated to providing people of all ages with a place to engage in informal science learning.
