​​Tournament Reach & Goals


In 2019, over 300 Students, 177 Teams, led by more than 20 Tech Coaches, representing 14 Middle Schools, competing in 15 Tech Competitions, focused on 4 main categories: Robotics, Video Production, Coding, and Design, for ONE action-packed day…​

​The goal of the competition is to engage students with a variety of innovative technologies to help develop skills in collaboration, communication, critical thinking, and creativity.
​Students prepare for months for this competition while developing their expertise as 3D Designers, Video Producers, Game & Website Developers, Graphic Designers, and Robotics Engineers. All 16 events are STEAM-focused and help provide skills necessary for success in the 21st century.


2021 Online Events:

Robotics (Sumo Bots & Operation Clean-up)

Design (3D Printed Bridge, Website Design, Minecraft Game Design)

Video (Advertisement, Blockbuster, Documentary, Public Service Announcement)

Coding (Website Development, Minecraft Code Builder)


ALERT

Being a "techie" is not a requirement!

Although the students use a LOT of technology to compete, judging the events only makes you look tech-savvy​!​


Interested in Judging?​

We will be accepting volunteers to help judge next year's Tournament events and as usual, you will receive the current year's Tournament of Technology T-shirt! Please stay posted!

The criteria for being a judge is simple:

  1. Be willing to judge one of the Tournament events online.

  2. Be prepared to be amazed at what our middle school students can accomplish in the areas of video, robotics, design, and code.

  3. Be willing to work collaboratively in judging groups of 2 or 3 to score one of the Tournament events.


Registration for 2021 judging is now closed. 
Come back next year and sign up to judge both our Online and Live Events!


This year we are streamlining the competition to reduce the number of events and maximize our virtual tournament that will take place 100% online. We will host a Presentation Style Awards Ceremony for all events on April 17th. 

CTE, together with IT offered new CTE Enrichment courses during the Expanded Learning Summer Program in 2017. The world of Career Technical Education (CTE) has a broad spectrum of industry sectors. Coding, Robotics, and Video Production are all foundational skills that directly connect to many career opportunities within multiple industry sectors. For example, robotics is a foundational experience for students who may want to pursue study engineering, computer science, manufacturing, or transportation, to name a few.

The intent of CTE Middle School Enrichment is to provide students with opportunities to learn foundational skills, attend varied guest lecture events, make industry site visits that relate to Robotics, Coding & Video Production.​ ​
