Requirements/Sections


Undergraduate, Overgraduate, High School sections

There are 3 sections in iGEM 2016:

  1. Undergraduate: all student team members are age 23 or younger on March 31, 2016
  2. Overgraduate: one or more student team members are older than 23 on March 31, 2016
  3. High School: all student team members are high school students on March 31, 2016; includes students who graduate from high school spring 2016

Constraints

  • If your team has student members who are university students, age 23 or younger on March 31, 2016, your team is in the Undergraduate section.
  • If your team has one or more student members who are university students over the age of 23 on March 31, 2016, your team is in the Overgraduate section.
  • If your team has student members who are high school students on March 31, 2016, your team is in the High School section. This includes students who graduate from high school in spring 2016.

All teams, regardless of their section, have the opportunity to participate in the 2016 Giant Jamboree -- it will be the same event for all 3 sections.

Note: Your team's section will be calculated automatically by the iGEM software based on the ages of the student members on your team roster. Be sure to include ages for all student team members, otherwise the system will default to placing your team in the Overgraduate section even if you are an Undergraduate team.
