How to register?

SCHOOL STUDENTS (AGED 15 – 18)

School Students must register through a science teacher/lab technician (who is going to supervise their work and act as their official guardian).

All school students participants under the age of 21 are under their school supervisor’s responsibility, and the supervisor (teacher) confirms that he/she has the full permission of the legal guardian of the students that he/she registers to participate in the Atlas Innovation Program and that they will be under his/her full responsibility and supervision at all times, during the workshops, Exhibition, Fair, and during any of the Atlas Innovation program’s activities, and that SAGIT holds no responsibility on supervising those participants. The teacher (supervisor) agrees that he/she read the EF Participant’s Release and Waiver of Liability Form and agrees to its terms and conditions on behalf of his/her registered students with their legal guardian’s consent.

Parent name and contact details are required for all School students to complete the registration.

The teacher should have a science/engineering background.

The teacher must register first as a “School Students Supervisor”, add the full project details, then register the students and add their details.

A full project plan (research background, projects objectives, methodology and procedures, expected results and community benefit), including a comprehensive abstract (only 200 words) with clear objectives and outcomes, should be submitted online.

Redundant or repeated projects will not be accepted and the project abstract must be written carefully.

Each student can participate with one project only

A maximum of three participants can make up each team

Refer to the Nationality rules are as follows:

At least two African nationals per team of three
At least one African national per of two
In case of applying as one individual, the participant should be an African.
Private Schools with no African students may participate with no African nationals, but are subject to the approval of the judging committee
Accurate student’s contact details are required to complete registration (Name as per the passport, email, mobile etc.)
Teachers can supervise many projects through one registration account
Only one school supervisor is allowed per project

Previously registered teachers in (2018) can simply log-in to activate their accounts for the 2020 Atlas Innovation Challenge.

UNIVERSITY STUDENTS (UNDERGRADUATES, BACHELOR, COLLEGE, DIPLOMA)

University students can register directly as teams or individuals
A team Leader must initiate the registration process then he/she adds the team members and the full project details
Each team member will receive an email with the “EF Participant’s Release and Waiver of Liability Form”, and must login to his/her account and agree to its terms and conditions for his/her account to be activated
