The University of Toronto “HiSkule” committee has two upcoming one-day design competitions; one in November for high school students, one in March for middle school students.

Design competitions are fun and interactive way of discovering and developing an engineering skillset. In teams, competitors will conceptualize, design, build, and present a solution to a real-world engineering design challenge. Our goal is to inspire students who are at a critical stage of their education to consider engineering as a possible career path!

Designs will be evaluated by judges ranging from current engineering students, Faculty Alumni, professors and industry professionals.
