'Cookies' are small text files that are stored by the browser on your computer or mobile phone.

You can think of cookies as providing a "memory" for the website, enabling it to recognise a user and respond appropriately. Some cookies also provide meaningful reports about a website's visitors.
Cookies are used by almost all websites, for a variety of purposes:

All ideas created or developed during this event remain solely those of the creator. This is with the understanding that ideas and content shared during your solution proposal document or presentation pitch (where applicable) will be shared publicly amongst fellow groups, judges, and the organising committees. A high-level version of your solution proposal may be shared in follow-up post-event marketing purposes, but will still remain the creator’s Intellectual Property.
The presenter(s) will retain Intellectual Property of their presentation(s) and any additional material shared.
This Challenge is open to all High School, College, and University students globally. Participants must each be a current student and their status must be verifiable upon request.
The teams which are selected to present their solutions to our judges will be asked to provide identification that links them to their place of education. Failure to provide this on-demand, or providing inaccurate evidence, will result in your team's proposal being removed from the shortlist and you will be unable to continue in the Challenge.
