How to Register: Olympics are on Oct. 20, 2016

Thank you for your interest in the McMaster Engineering Olympics. Registration is now full.

Welcome to all secondary school teachers! A registration fee of $25 per student attendee provides entrance to the Olympics and Open House. All registered participants will receive a T-shirt, lunch and snacks. Students who do not wish to compete are welcome to participate in the Open House activities, but all attendees are required to submit a registration fee. Cost is per student - both competing and non-competing. No charge for teachers and chaperone volunteers.

'A-Teams' participate in guaranteed event spaces for each school. 'B-Teams' are assigned to additional event spots left once all schools have been allocated their guaranteed 'A-Team' events. We do our best to manually schedule as many 'B-Team' events in advance as per your requests. Each school registers teams of up to 4 students per timeslot. Teams can be made up of the same members throughout the day or of various combinations. Please submit all names of attendees by the registration closing date.


  • Check your school schedule 2 days before the Olympics to see which B-Teams events have been approved and to select the proper timeslots. You can then also add/edit student team members for these events.

  • Egg High Jump and Mechanical Transporter often fill up with A-Teams. However, IF there is B-Team space, the Olympics Coordinator will email you to give your students advanced notice to be able to build a project in time.

  • On the day of the Olympics, after you check in at registration, there will be a first-come, first-serve opportunity to select B-Team events IF they still have openings.

Registration Details:

  1. You may register your school before you have your student attendee numbers confirmed, however, we ask you to provide them at your earliest convenience for planning necessities.

  2. B-Team scheduling begins after all registered schools have been placed in their guaranteed 5 event maximum for A-Teams. We do our best to schedule these extra spaces left in events for each school in advance as well as on the morning of the Olympics. There are no guarantees for B-Team placement in a particular event! PLEASE check your school schedule available on your registration page the day before the event to see the most up to date event assignments. If there are any remaining B-Team spaces available, you may inquire at the B-Team registration table (first-come, first-serve basis).

  3. We recommend you bring your Registration Confirmation email and tentative school schedule. Changes to student names on the Team Registration Forms may be submitted on the day of the event at the Registration area. Blank forms will be available at the B-Team Event Registration desk. FINAL event assignments are provided in the Olympics Agenda during the registration sign-in.
