Check your festival program for the time and location of the annual Region III Tech Olympics, and put together a team from your school. Teams, of two people each, compete in 5 events, judged on time with reductions for errors and omissions. Registration for the event happens on-site. The competition will have staggered starting times, with each event not lasting longer than 10 minutes. The events are tentative and procedures subject to change. The top 3 teams will be recognized

Tentative Events (Subject to Change)
