Explore. Innovate. Achieve.
The annual High School Design Competition is hosted and sponsored by the Self Engineering Leadership Fellows Program at the University of Kansas School of Engineering. Fellows in the third-year cohort plan and execute the event from idea to competition day.
The SELF Program is proud to award $12,000 in scholarships to event winners.
The High School Design Competition is a free event that takes place annually in the fall, putting high school students' creativity, teamwork skills, as well as their technical knowledge and abilities to the test. Each year features a new engineering design challenge as dreamed up by students in the Self Engineering Leadership Fellows Program. Working in small teams at their hometowns, high school students design, build and test a project that addresses the design criteria. On the day of the competition teams arrive at KU prepared for a head-to-head competition to see whose device performs best.
Thank you to all of the competitors, sponsors, and teachers who attended the 2019 High School Design Competition!
