About the Category
Re-engineering is the act of taking an existing engineering concept, product, technique, or technology and incrementally improving on its design to suit an alternate situation or application. In this competition, students will be required to apply the re-engineering process to an existing gadget or mechanism in order to add new functionality to it or enhance its original functionality. The intent of these improvements will be to extend the use of the device to an alternative situation or use case.
The competitors will be required to write a report for each of the cases they complete as well as prepare one presentation to address both cases in front of the judges. Competitors can also opt to combine both solutions into one report of the combined length if they feel this format better conveys their solutions
