The jury is made up of leading scientists from both academia
and industry. Before the event, the jury carries out a preliminary
assessment of the entries. At the event, each team is
grilled by at least three jury members. During these intense
interviews, the jury is looking for the following:
- originality and creativity;
- skill and thoroughness in the way the project has been
- reasoning and clarity in the interpretation of the results;
- top class presentation of the project, both in the written
work and during the interviews.
The judges also take into account how much support a team
had from teachers and other mentors.
