90 young and bright students from York Region Primary Schools participated in this year’s competition. They individually solved engineering problems by applying their math skills and providing their numeric and multiple choice answers with wireless clickers. The competition had three parts, Round 1, AMD Challenge and Round 2. AMD Challenge questions were related to Accelerated Processing Unit (APU) technology from AMD. The grand prize included a laptop with an AMD APU processor. There were other prizes for the top three Junior and Senior Level competitors.

AMD and Education Committee team members organized booths with fun and creative activities during the break time. Students participated in a face challenge contest where they made silly faces in front of the PC screen with an avatar that mimic their faces. They also visited the Education Committee booth with information and video about Design Challenge competition that is held during the National Engineering Month at York Region. They won additional prizes by participating in these two activities.
