There are no official competition beginning or ending dates on the competition schedule. The SMART Competition has made the schedule completely flexible. The actual dates and specific deliverable dates are subject to the decisions made by each individual team. Each team has the flexibility to create their own project plan and schedule.
“While we believe the Competition can be completed in 1-2 months, we want each team to control the time they spend on the competition”. According to Michael Andrews, one of the SMART Competition leadership team, “providing flexibility and emphasizing team decision making is one essential element of success.”
One of the first activities each team completes is their schedule using the project management system within Bentley ProjectWise.
The Competition is an excellent educational program that compliments studies in sustainability, LEED design issues, and renewable power generation.
The SMART Competition (www.smartcompetition.org) is a global STEM and Career and Technology Education (CTE) education program. The competition is open to all high school and university students. The competition is designed to attract all students without regard or bias of gender, race, socio-economic or academic performance level.
