The judges will be looking for projects that score highly against the following main criteria:
1. Project concept - what was the motivation behind your project and what were your aims?
2. Project process - how well did you plan and organise your work? What sort of experiments and research did you do? Were you innovative or creative in your approach?
3. Project outcome - how well did your project achieve its aims? Is your final product or report of a high quality? Does your project have a ‘real-world’ application?
4. Personal skills - how well did you deal with any problems or challenges? How well do you communicate your project? Does your enthusiasm shine through?
