Solutions, a division of Synergis Technologies, Inc., announced registration
is now open for two Synergis student design competitions for secondary school
students in Pennsylvania and New Jersey.
To further promote engineering design in schools and recognize students for

their third year, over 100 students from 20 schools have been involved, with
the winning designs being presented during Synergis University, an annual
technology event that pulls over 200 engineering professionals across the
The Synergis Architectural Design Competition focuses on real-world situations
in architecture and construction today. This year, students will learn
adaptive reuse while redesigning a small-town Main Street building into a
children's museum. Creativity is built in with very few requirements for the
space so students will be able to design with their own interests in mind. The
Synergis-F1 Design Competition follows the Pennsylvania F1 rules to design a
CO2 powered model racing car.
"We are excited to see this year's designs. Last year, the first-place
students from Montgomery High School, NJ impressed design professionals at
Synergis University with their presentation and design ideas," said Kristen
Tomasic, vice president of Synergis Engineering Design Solutions. "Each year
we've had more schools participate and we are hoping to see even more teams
engaged this year. This is one of our favorite student events and we look
forward to the competition, the design submissions, and the students'
involvement in Synergis University."
Entries are due March 1, 2013 for Synergis-F1 and April 15, 2013 for the
Synergis Architectural Design Competition. The winning design teams get $1,000
and will present their designs to professionals at Synergis University on June
