Registration closes at 5pm on Monday 24rd August (Just after National Science Week)
When a student has qualified for the 2015 Young Scientist Paper Plane Challenge, an online Registration Form will need to be filled out for the event they have qualified for, only if they intend to come to the finals at The University of Sydney Open Day on Saturday 29th August. When a regional student has qualified for the Regional High Flyers Competition, an online Registration Form will need to be filled out for the event they have qualified for and they will need to provide video evidence of this qualifying throw.
The registration form can be filled out by the student, parent or a teacher. All the fields marked with an asterisk need to be filled in, so make sure you have the name and email details of both the student and the adult who can verify their qualifying throw. Parents are most welcome to provide their email address if their child does not have their own email address.
A separate registration form must be submitted for each qualifying throw and students are welcome and even encouraged to register more than once, if the student has improved their distance or time. We are wanting students to experiment with new and improved designs, so that they are continually selecting a range of techniques to produce solutions that address the design criteria and identified constraints (Stage 3, Working Technologically outcome: NSW Science K-10 (incorporating Science and Technology K-6) Syllabus).
Once the registration form has been filled in, press submit and a confirmation will be sent to each supplied email address. If a mistake has been made with the registration and it has already been submitted, send a brief explanatory email to email@example.com and then fill in a separate registration form.
