Last Chance to enter the 2020 Virtual Display and Presentation
Welcome to a school term that is looking a little differently than 2019.
Typically, the start of term 4 marks the beginning of the Energy Breakthrough madness for both educators and Energy Breakthrough staff.
Whilst this year has been disrupted due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Energy Breakthrough offers schools a chance to reinforce their educational aspect of the Energy Breakthrough by completing their Display and Presentation Video virtually (vD&P). This is a one-off exciting opportunity for 2020 and allows students to focus on the technical skills they have used during the pandemic, and put together a Display and Presentation video, to be marked by our judges, in a non-traditional Energy Breakthgou style!
Interested schools should complete a video of a maximum length of 15 minutes, consisting of a 10-minute presentation by students and up to 5 minutes of impromptu questions.
The impromptu questions will be supplied by the Education Planning Group but asked by the teacher. The questions will be sent to the teacher via email once an expression of interest from the school has been received.
Panels of judges will review all videos. Teams will be given a score and provided with feedback on all elements of their Display & Presentation, which they will then be able to use to support them in 2021.
After judging, the top three videos will be shared on the website.

Lachy probably never knew what he was in for when he first volunteered to help out on the Holden Stage at the 2009 RACV Energy Breakthrough. Whilst he participated in the Innovations in Technology category back in 2005, he has been on the 'other side of the fence' ever since and now manages the event's website, wifi network and Holden Stage. Away from the Energy Breakthrough, Lachy is heavily involved in the local Maryborough community across events, community radio and theatre and he was nominated for the for the Saward Dawson Community Service and Volunteering award in 2013.
