Teachers-leaders and mentors
- Team teacher-leaders and Student contestants are expected to be familiar with the contest rules, including the fine print.
- Every ‘Pioneer’ team must have a teacher-leader and every Skywalker contestant should have a teacher, family member or youth leader to assist them.
- Mentors provide purely technical and scientific advice to ‘Pioneer’ and ’Explorer’ teams or contestants, and there is no limit on the number of submissions they can act as advisor for.
- For more information also see the Pioneers page (for teacher-leaders) and the section Mentors and Evaluators.
