The Tips

  • Have an idea which isn’t too big - the amount of work needed to create something might seem a lot less at the beginning
  • Adapt your idea to the circumstances - don’t get stuck on one thing. If it’s taking too long then move on
  • Better art != more fun
  • Board games are allowed in this competition!
  • Make sure you take some breaks - sometimes a short walk can give you the solution to a problem
  • Don’t take it too seriously :)

The Rules

  • Wires or other trip hazards must be out of the way, only use the electrical sockets right next to your table.
