2021 contest

The Amazing Spaghetti Machine Contest International is open to all international high school students between the ages of 14–17, outside Australia and New Zealand.

Your knowledge and skills in maths, science, design and engineering are put to the test in the creation of a ‘spaghetti machine’ – an overly complex machine or device that is used to perform a relatively simple task.

To support the world’s brightest minds in the face of the continuing global COVID-19 challenge, we have continued to implement a fully-online structure for the Amazing Spaghetti Machine Contest International. We will continue to run the competition in this manner and make it accessible for all in 2021. Read the ‘Rules’ section to understand how we have adapted the competition and how you can be involved!
