WATERVILLE, MAINE, October 2019 — Registration is now open for Thomas College’s annual Thomas Cup competition held on December 7 at Thomas College in Waterville.
Open to both high school and home school students, the Thomas Cup offers a free-to-attend day of challenge, learning, fun, and excitement to 32 teams of five Maine students. After receiving instruction from Thomas College faculty, teams compete throughout the day across five STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts, and Mathematics) events covering topics including: cybersecurity, crime scene investigation, robotics, innovation, and strategy.
Thomas Cup, historically an overnight event, will instead take place from 8 a.m. to 9 p.m. – ending with an awards ceremony and a presentation to the winning team of a two-foot trophy, the Thomas Cup.
