2019 Fulton County Technology Competition Questions and Answers:
All Schools-Please complete this form to be your schools liason if you have not already. Each school in Fulton County should have a Liason.
Dates students may be registered for the County Competition: December 13-19th at midnight.
School Liaison: We can only have one name per school because that is how the registration piece works. A Vanguard member, METI, Career Tech teacher, TAG teacher, etc…make the best liaisons as they have more direct contact with students. As the STS has other technical responsibilities, he/she should not serve as the school liaison.
How many projects can I enter? 1 project per grade grouping per category
Does my school have to host a Tech Competition to determine who goes to the County Competition? You do not have to have a school-based competition. It is up to the individual school to determine which projects are presented at the competition. Some schools have a local competition, others do first-come/first-served, still others have a teacher or group of teachers decide. If you have your own competition, you can use whatever criteria you wish. It would be to your students advantage to use the rubrics on the Tech Fair website as that will give them a better understanding of what the judges are looking for.
Should my students study the rubric? Yes! Students need to understand what the judges are looking for. The rubrics are intentionally broad to allow for diverse thinking and creativity.
How many students can be on a team? Students can be on a team with either 1 or 2 people. Students can compete out of their grade band, but they must compete at the grade level of the highest student. For example, if a 4th grader competed with a sibling who was in 6th grade then they have to compete at the 6th grade level.
Can I send a proxy if a student is sick and cannot attend? Unfortunately, if a child is sick they cannot send a proxy. The judges are looking to question the person who did the work as the judging is more focused on the student's knowledge of the project and less on the overall end-product.
Should students bring their own computers? Yes
