Energy competitions can be a fun way to apply your understanding of science. Whether you're a seventh-grader interested in testing your understanding of energy efficiency and renewables, or an engineering student who wants to design a home for the Solar Decathlon, you can find a wide range of energy-related contests for all ages. Check out the links in this section and get ready to see how your design, engineering, and knowledge stack up against your peers.
Here you will find:
- Opportunities for K-12 Students: Students can demonstrate their skills in a wide range of energy competitions that challenge them to build an electric car, design a school of the future, and much more.
- Opportunities for University Students and Professors: College and graduate students, along with their professors, can apply their technical prowess in competitions that challenge them with projects ranging from designing a more energy-efficient paper industry to constructing a solar-powered house.
