Contest Commission
Contest commission consists of participating teachers. Commission chairman will be elected by commission members. Commission determines individual tasks winners and team winners.

Tasks of contest and proceeding
Tasks of contest will be presented in English. The teams perform these tasks:

Theoretical test
All team members (students) will perform test at the same time. Test is composed of electronics and electrical engineering study areas: Physics, Electronics, Electrotechnics, Analogical and Discrete Devices, Signals and circuits, Electrical measurements.

1st practical task
Assembling of electronic circuit and measurement
Using K&H equipment  assemble the circuit and perform the measurements of parameters.

2nd practical task
Assembling and Controlling an Electronic Circuit with Python based on Raspberry Pi
To install an operating system on a Raspberry Pi, connect to a local Wi-Fi network, set up a Python environment on Raspberry PI to control a GPIO device.

3rd practical task
Assembling an electronic device
According to the task mount and solder electronic device.

ALL PRACTICAL TASKS WILL BE PERFORMED AT THE SAME TIME. ONE TEAM MEMBER WILL PERFORM ONE PRACTICAL TASK.

Evaluation of tasks 

Theoretical test
Time: 1 h 30 minutes.
The theoretical test consists of 50 questions. Theoretical test is worth up to 100 points. All team members will perform the same test, the average of all team members obtained points will be added to final team evaluation.

Practical tasks
Each practical task is evaluated individually and obtained points are added to final team evaluation. Task performance time is considered.

1st practical task
Time: 1 h 45 minutes.
Task will be evaluated up to 100 points.

2nd practical task
Time: 1 h 45 minutes.
Task will be evaluated up to 100 points.

3rd practical task
Time: 1 h 45 minutes.
Participants will receive set of details, printed circuit board, tools, principal electrical scheme and methodical material.
Task will be evaluated up to 100 points: fully functioning device submitted on time (up to 75 points), quality of soldering (up to 15 points), and quality of mounting (up to 10 points).

The more detailed information about evaluation of tasks will be provided at the meeting of team leaders.

Award of participants
The winner becomes the team with maximal points collected. If there are two or more teams with the same points collected, the higher place will be designated to the team, which have more points on practical tasks. Team winner and most points collected students at individual tasks will be awarded diplomas and sponsors prizes. IInd and IIIrd place winners will be awarded diplomas. For all participants and team leaders the certificates of participation will be handed.

Request: we would invite to wear team identifications (e.g. T-shirts, scarfs, caps, etc.)

You are welcome to participate!
