What Is It?
WE Go.DEsign is a two day Engineering Design and Research Competition for women in grade 10 and 11 presented by the Goethe-Institut. The Grand Prize will be a language, engineering and culture trip to Germany during Summer 2016!
There are two elements to the competition, a Research Symposium and a Design Challenge. Each element will be judged by Goethe Institut and University of Waterloo faculty and staff, with prizes awarded in each element.
At the research symposium, you will present a research project that demonstrates a connection between Canadian and German innovation or engineering. Think of a science fair style set up!
We don’t need you to solve a problem, write an essay, or invent something - we do want you to find a topic that you are interested in and learn more about it! How you display and demonstrate that knowledge is up to you.
The design challenge will be a surprise and will occur on the competition day!
Prior to the competition you will receive a preparation package and materials (worth up to $75.00). Completing these preparation activities will prepare you for the competition - but may not be a part of, or predict, the day of competition. These activities are designed to get you thinking and learning in the right direction.
