Competition Outline

Conduct background research

Explore current uses and/or marketing strategies that relate to the Circular Economy using resources such as the internet. 

Develop an idea and register in the contest

Come up with an idea or product with a focus on the Circular Economy and register in the contest. Ideas must be original and not already available to the public. The idea must be the work of your team but may include the input of your faculty mentor(s).

Determine if your idea will work

Research and plan out your idea. Explore, develop, and test a product prototype. Be innovative and have fun!

Write a final project report

Your final report must include a one-page abstract, background information, the technical basis for your idea, evidence of feasibility, substantiating data, and a high level economic assessment of its commercial potential. There is no word limit. Supporting materials, such as a product prototype, should be reserved for your display. 

Assemble a project display for judging

Displays will be judged in a science-fair format. It is suggested that you develop a self-standing three-sided display board, but other visual material – posters, charts, product prototypes and video clips for example – will also aid your verbal presentation.
