Electricity - Electronics Division
Entries in this division must be complete and in operating
condition to enable the judges to test their operation. Operating
instructions must accompany each entry. Instructions for entries
must include schematic diagrams as well as the correct name and
function of the project. Projects must be made safe to operate.
Example: (High voltage wires, tubes, and other potentially
dangerous components must be properly covered and labeled.) Note:
The judges may partially disassemble the project for visual
inspection and testing of components. Entries may be
Group or Individual
El-1 Electronics including kits: Entries in this classification involving discrete and/or integrated circuits related to audio, television, music, digital, communication, or other consumer products. Each entry must have a complete set of plans and/or schematics, an explanation of operation, and operating instructions. Scoring Guide for El-1
EL-2 Electrical Wiring including kits: This classification includes any entry which involves components used in commercial and residential wiring circuits that demonstrates (through the use of models) various circuits utilized. Each entry must have a complete set of plans and/or schematics, an explanation of operation, and operating instructions (if the operating procedure is not obvious). Scoring Guide for El-2
Groups eligible to participate A, N & E.
EL-3 Industrial Electronics / PLTW Projects: This classification includes any projects involving discrete and/or integrated circuits related to timing, counting, calculating, controlling, or activation of instruments (computers, advanced scientific measurement instrumentation or other industrial electronic applications). Each entry must have a complete set of plans and/or schematics, an explanation of operation, and operating instructions.
Group (N) - Novice or Amateur: a
person who is new to the circumstances, work, etc., in which he or
she is placed; beginner; tyro: a novice in the entry area.
This entry area is for the 1st year the student has entered in this project area.
Group (P) - Practiced or Experienced: skilled or proficient through practice or experience. This entry area is for the student has entered in this project area more than once.
Group (E) - is for the special needs students in Industrial Technology classes.
Note: In an effort to recognize the exceptional student, "Group E" has been created. The exceptional student may be entered either in "Group E" or mainstreamed into groups with other students according to grade level.
