That's quite an interesting extension for this idea.
I do believe that reality shows have a great engaging power and I did mention in my idea that one of the inspirations are TV talent shows(most of it being reality style).

About extending or applying some aspects of reality tv show can be evaluated wherever possible. For eg. When students participate and build a project, they can be provided tutorials/guidance to also shoot the video and upload to the competition website. Audience can engage with the team that way.
 I do think it would be a bit heavy for the execution team to also shoot, edit and doing post production- that by itself will need time, man power, budget.

We can rather provide guidance, tools for participants to present their project with an entertainment touch. For eg. The website can provide some movie style trailer themes and let participants only upload videos, turning their project final video presentation with a grand movie touch. Perhaps that may help the team bond as well.

I do think Facebook, Twitter, Instagram etc can come handy for the exhibit anyway.
