Thank you to all the teams involved. We have 10 teams signed up, let the challenges begin!

The 2023 mini-challenge is here!

The challenge is designed to heighten connectivity among our community of over 200 science, tech and innovation companies as teams of 6-8 people spend two afternoons competing in fun and accessible intellectual and physical based missions on campus.

This is your chance to showcase your team’s skills and talents as you compete against other hot space, science and tech companies across the campus. Taking place over two afternoons in June, the first afternoon will be held in your office at a time that suits your team, while the second afternoon will be a more physical timed activity at a single location on campus.

To participate, we need your team to come up with a team name and register by email to Please also provide the number of participants in your team.

If you’d like to make a donation to our charity of the year – the Institute of Imagination – you can do so here.

The team that earns the most points will be crowned the winner of the Cluster cup, so make sure to bring your A-game! Don’t miss out on this exciting opportunity to network, build team spirit, and support a great cause. Sign up your team today for the mini-challenge!

Dates for the challenge are as follows:

15th June – is the ‘final’. This will be an event that will take place at Quad for an hour and a half or so where all the teams will compete against one another.
