Get Involved

You’re ready to take the dive – it’s great to have you on board or coming back to us!

We’ve changed our registration process a little bit compared to previous years in order to be able to provide the best experience that we can. You will receive emails from  [email protected] about the details of your team and qualifying heat.

You do not need to give us full details of your team until the week before your regional, but we do need to know how many students you want to enter so that we can balance the attendance of our events! Please ensure that you have sent [email protected] a full attendance list with names and email addresses for the competing students at least a week before the event.

If it is necessary to change students on the day due to illness or unavailability, please tell us when you arrive and have their details handy. For alterations to attendance at online events, please email the amendments (additions and removals) to [email protected] as early as possible although we may not be able to get students online until after the opening presentation

The Rules of Entry

  1. Teams may consist of between 4 and 12 students, all between Years 10 and 13 (in England/Wales, or equivalent elsewhere in the United Kingdom).
  2. Teams who are not successful in the regional heats are permitted to place an additional entry to UKSDC via the digital competition, space permitting.
  3. Each team must have a designated supervising adult (over the age of 18). This is usually a teacher (in the case that a team’s affiliated organisation is a school).
  4. Registration of a team using the provided form indicates permission has been given by a parent/guardian for a team member to participate.
  5. Only one team may be associated with an institution in order to give as many people the opportunity to get involved as possible. If you are interested in registering a second team, please contact [email protected] directly. Should additional space become available, interested parties will be contacted on a first-come, first-served basis.
