Volunteer Mentors and/or Judges

The Competition is seeking energy professionals (from all fields, countries, and organizations - business, academic, government, nonprofit, etc.) to remotely act as volunteer mentors and/or judges.

The time spent per role (mentor/ judge) is expected to be under 5 hours for the whole event. No travel is necessary, since this is a virtual competition.

MENTORS

Mentors will virtually meet with their teams at least once a week, for a total time not exceeding 5 hours, during the weeks between April 26 and May 14, including a 30-minute introductory session.

The role of the mentors include:

  • Provide general guidance to ensure the students understand the problem

  • Test the feasibility of the solutions proposed by the students

  • Secure that the students work efficiently in preparing and delivering a solid product, within the given time frame
