EnergyWhiz Olympics

EnergyWhiz: Empowering Student Innovation for a Clean Energy Future

Judges from the community are needed for virtual and in-person events to provide feedback to students about their solar energy projects.

Competition Details

The Critter Comfort Cottage (C3) competition is a real-world engineering and communications challenge. Students use green building design and construction techniques to create an energy-efficient, cost-effective, comfortable “home” for a critter. Teams must also create a marketing plan that describes the features and benefits of their comfort cottage for the critter they have selected.

Energy Inspired Art (EIA) is a competition where the objective is to create a work of art that is inspired by an aspect of renewable energy, energy efficiency and/or climate science. Any art media, technique, visual, performance, musical or literary art may be submitted.

In the Energy Transfer Machine (ETM) competition students are challenged to transform everyday materials into a wacky, innovative machine that performs a variety of energy transfers within a specified time. The machine must accomplish a team-specified task at the one-minute mark. Students don’t need to transport their contraptions, instead they submit a video of their machine in action.

In this Junior Solar Sprint (JSS) competition, students build a model size solar electric car. Students submit their design journals, photos and a video of their car running using the Sun’s Energy. Each car is judged on technology, craftsmanship, innovation and appearance. This event challenges students to use their science, creative thinking, and teamwork skills.

There are two parts to the Solar Energy Cook-Off (SECO) competition. Students will begin by designing and building a solar thermal “oven” to cook their tasty creations. Then, students present their solar-cooked dish to a panel of judges. Students compete for best solar cooker design, as well as a culinary award. Students show off their knowledge and abilities in engineering and construction. Likewise, they also show their problem-solving skills.

DoD Starbase

DoD STARBASE: Premier DoD Educational Outreach Program

Sponsored by the Office of the Assistant Secretary of Defense for Manpower and Reserve Affairs, DoD STARBASE locations allow students to participate in challenging “hands-on, minds-on” activities in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM). They interact with military personnel to explore careers and observe STEM applications in the “real world.” The program provides students with 25 hours of stimulating experiences at National Guard, Marine, Air Force Reserve, Army, and Air Force bases across the nation.

DoD STARBASE’s primary focus is the program for fifth graders. The goal is to motivate them to explore STEM opportunities as they continue their education. The academies serve students that are historically underrepresented in STEM. Students who live in inner cities or rural locations, those who are socio-economically disadvantaged, low in academic performance, or have a disability are in the target group. The program encourages students to set goals and achieve them.
