Welcome to the Winter Competition at Paul Duke STEM.
We are proud to provide 3 competition fields, one skills field, and one practice field, provided by the GCPS CTE Program. We will be running 5-6 qualification matches depending on the pace of our matches (Determined by our November competition)
Thanks to our sponsors Synopsys for partnering with us on this event. They will be funding our livestream, as well as providing judges and gifts to our participating teams. Synopsys is a global leader in silicon chip design and IP, and their support will have a great positive impact on the experience of our attendees.
For many teams, this competition, and more importantly the skills field, will be a last ditch opportunity to qualify for the State Championship, so we will have special infrastructure in place to make sure the skills field can accomodate teams and audiences.
