Emailed Confirmation With Instructions
Emailed Confirmation Notification: By 2 PM, March 5, 2018
All registered teams are contacted by email by 2 PM, Monday, March 5, 2018. The confirmation email contains your team's assigned team number and the team login, and team password for your team's online account. That email also includes detailed step-by-step visual instructions for accessing and using your online team account. You and your students will have the opportunity to get familiar with "Moodle" by practicing in a "sandbox" before the competition starts.

If your team does not receive an email for any reason by 2 PM, Monday, March 5, 2018, please contact us. Why? In the past, a few high schools had blocked email. Although unlikely, it has happened. (If that is the case, you'll need to contact your school or district network administrator to "unblock" or "whitelist" email coming from the "domain" of ulm.edu

The Technology Challenge Takes Place Wednesday morning, March 7, 2018 Between 8:00 AM And 11:59 AM
The Technology Challenge takes place online during the morning. Students in your high school team should be excused to use your school's computer lab, or suitable location, during the morning hours of this day.
  • Your team can start the Technology Challenge at 8:00 AM. 
  • The strict deadline for completed submission is 11:59 AM. There is a very stiff penalty for late submission. We use the time stamp of your last COMPLETED submission; every late minute is a 1 point deduction from the team score. 
  • Incomplete team submissions, for any reason, received after 12:29 PM are NOT judged.  
On the day of the competition, each team coach is asked to complete a brief online evaluation of the Technology Challenge. This is greatly appreciated.
Pizza Party (Optional!)Thursday, March 8, 2018
Optionally, nearly all teams do have a pizza party following the competition. We hope your high school offers this to your students. This is highly recommended.
T-Shirts (Optional)Optional Order For T-Shirts
On March 7, 2018, the day of the Technology Challenge, your team will have the option to make a team order for T-shirts priced @ $5.00 each, without a delivery charge. (Note: Any subsequent orders will require a delivery charge.)

This is completely optional. The T-shirts are of good quality at a very reasonable cost. Thanks to sponsorship, the cost of the T-shirts ("Gildan"/ Heavy Cotton" brand, 100% cotton) includes the logo for the Technology Challenge (shown on the right). We hope each student gets the chance to have a T-shirt.

If your team does make an order for T-shirts, send a check made out to:

”TechChallenge”, ULM Account 8LHSTC
