Orbital’s Splashdown workshop is the closing event for Orbital.  It’s a mandatory event for all teams.  Come find out what our newly-minted 2nd year SoCians have been doing over the summer!

Teams, as well as their friends, guests and the general public can participate in the event.  Prizes will be awarded to the top team in each level of achievement, as determined by the course staff and by public voting.

Stay tuned for more details on Splashdown (currently scheduled on 23 Aug 2017 from 18:00-21:30)!

Splashdown is structured as two back-to-back poster sessions with a final oral session and awards section (detailed schedule to be announced closer to the date);  Orbital teams will be assigned to one of two sessions to present their work.  During each of the two poster sessions, each team will be presenting their work via a A1 sized poster that they will have to prepare and print (pre-paid for you at SoC Technical Services).

Splashdown will also feature peer voting for best projects.  During the poster sessions, take note of which other teams you think did the best projects and vote for their project electronically using your smart phone or tablet.  We’ll tally your votes and announce the winner at the end of Splashdown at the awards ceremony.  Guests (first years, and seniors) are also welcomed to attend and will need to register for the event to be given voting privileges; see the Splashdown page soon, when that information is updated.  Google SG has kindly sponsored some prizes for the very best projects, as voted by all of you and our observers.
