Inter-School Events
The EPro8 Challenge is the inter-school science and engineering competition.  Every year over 13,000 students from 900 schools from throughout New Zealand take part.
Students participate in a series of events: firstly within their school and then inter-school.  These events are designed to promote science and engineering.

The EPro8 Challenge starts with an internal event that teachers run within their own school.  
We will hire your school a classroom lot of equipment (if required), provide you with challenges, certificates and access to the live scoring system.

The EPro8 Internal Event can be run as:
  • As stand-alone event
  • Part of the EPro8 Classroom Week
  • Part of the NEW EPro8 School Week

The top teams from each internal event qualify for the inter-school heats.  Each heat will have twelve teams from schools throughout your region complete a variety of science and engineering based challenges.  The top teams qualify for the regional grand final.

Auckland, Wellington and Canterbury also have a semifinal round.

Teams of four students will compete for the title of their regions EPro8 Challenge Champion.
