The 6th Annual Thomas Cup will be held virtually.
Open to high school and home-school students, the 6th Annual Thomas Cup will host virtual teams as they compete for the top bragging rights in a number of science, technology, engineering, and innovation competitions including: cyber defense, esports, computer science, and crime scene investigation (CSI).
While the Thomas Cup is centered on technology, competitors will need more than just technical skills to succeed. The best teams will combine a mix of project management, innovation, creativity, teamwork, leadership, and more in order to overcome the challenges and defeat their opponents. No matter what interests and skills competitors bring to the table, they’ll enjoy a unique night of exciting challenges all at no cost.
More information about specific challenges, team size, registration, and other opportunities to compete beyond the night of the Thomas Cup will be available in mid-to-late October 2020.
