Students in grades 7 through 12 from any of ten Bay Area counties can sign up in teams of 2 to 4 to develop innovative solutions using clean energy technology.

In this second annual Applied Materials’ Clean Tech Competition students will tackle how to provide clean water for all, compete for prizes and scholarships up to $5,000, and possibly change the world.

Teams will need to:

  • Identify a water access problem in your community or in a specific location of your choice in the world.
  • Describe the cause and scope of this issue.
  • Explain the specific impacts on health, economic, or environmental conditions of the community.
  • Design a solution that uses clean energy technology to address your identified water access problem, and explain how it would help meet human needs and improve lives.

Submissions are due at the end of February, 2013.
