The College of Saint Benedict and Saint John’s University will host high school science students (grades 10-12*) interested in applying their knowledge and ingenuity to design devices to accomplish prescribed tasks. Students will compete in teams of two (or individually) for the first two categories. The Impromptu Competition will require two to four participants per team.

Each participant may compete in one or more categories.  Click on category for more info.
