The Regional Championship took place online for a 24 hour period on 20 January 2016. This year’s steelChallenge attracted 1099 participants representing 42 countries. The tenth edition was the most engaging challenge ever with over 65% of participants registering a successful run.
There were 34 073 attempts with the electric arc furnace steelmaking simulation with 724 people successfully completing at least one run of the simulation and a total of 7824 successful runs completed.
The new Regional Champions in the ‘Industry’ and ‘Student’ categories will be invited with expenses paid to compete for the title of World Champion in London in April 2016. The award ceremony will be held in the presence of leaders of the global steel industry. All Regional Champions will be awarded certificates, cash prizes and an iPad in addition to their trip. The World Champions in both categories will also be awarded a World Champion certificate, an additional cash prize and the steelChallenge trophy.
