During the Preparation time:

Teachers should log in and download the Question Book and print a copy for each student.

Teams should log in and fill out the Team Information Questionnaire (Note they cannot start filling out answers for the competition until this is completed)

Note: The team information questionnaire asks for the Name and Address of the School as well as the Name and Email address of the supervising teacher. It may be useful for the teacher to write this information up on a board for all to see and copy from.

Start of Competition:

Teams can now start looking at their question books and can also open the competition online to fill in their answers.

Within teams, participants can work cooperatively, but not across teams.

End of Competition:

Teams must ensure they submit their answers online, by the end of the competition.

Teachers should collect and keep all question books and notes. In the unlikely event that a team’s responses are not saved by the system we will contact you and ask you to scan the team’s question book for manual marking.
