Teams of college students across the nation already are competing virtually in the Avnet Tech Games while some prepare to also go head-to-head in an on-site competition April 14 at the University of Advancing Technology in Tempe.
Each student team is presented with a scenario and competes against others for the chance for each member to receive a scholarship worth up to $1,000. One of the projects in the virtual contest includes development of a Google Android app while one of the challenges in the on-site competition will be to design, build, test and present the best overall solar-powered water pumping system.
Virtual projects are submitted to judges who are able to score them remotely and declare a winner while the on-site competition will be declared by judges the day of the contest. For more information, go to avnettechgames.com.
