Over a four month period, participants worked on their projects which reflected engineering in their local community. Recurring themes include health focused projects and wind energy.
The competition is divided into two categories, the first targeting 3rd-4th class and the second focusing on 5th-6th class. The top 15 projects from each category have been chosen to represent their school at the Xperience Engineering National Final. The winners of the Junior and Senior Categories each receive a trophy and a laptop for their school and a cheque for educational equipment. Highly commended entries in both categories will receive laptops for their school.
