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.

Research Symposium

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 dont 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.

Design Challenge

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.
