Hall sensor competition guidelines


  • Participants are allowed to take part in the competition as an individual or as a team of up to two members.


Category 1: High school students (registration form)

Category 2: Undergraduate students (registration form)


Step into the realm of Hall effect sensors and discover their potential in various applications. We offer you an opportunity to explore, experiment, and push your boundaries.  Showcase your creative ideas and bring them to life by incorporating Hall effect sensors in your projects.


  • Your project must utilize at least one Hall effect sensor. Introductory materials on Hall sensors are available here and a simple demonstration is available here to get you started 

  • Document and demonstrate the effectiveness of your project. Show the judges how your setup works and the value it brings.

  • We encourage you to be creative, innovative, and clever in your approach!

Bonus segment

  • As a glimpse into MagnetiSiM 2024, you have the option to showcase your setup to individuals and groups outside your team (e.g. friends, colleagues, etc). Educate and engage them with your project, highlighting the Hall effect and the effectiveness of your creation. Capture this experience in a travel diary with pictures and details of the audiences you interacted with.

Submission Package

  1. Prepare a concise report of 2-4 pages, including:

    (i)  Information on the parts and components you utilized.

    (ii)  A breakdown of project expenses.

    (iii) Step-by-step instructions to explain the setup.

    (iv) Photos to support your report are highly encouraged. 

  2. Create a video, up to 7 minutes long, showcasing your final project and demonstrating the versatility of the Hall effect sensor.

  3. Share a travel diary documenting the interaction of your setup with audiences. Include pictures and details (name, age group, affiliation, email) of the individuals you engaged with. 


Submission platform will be launched soon.
