Judging Format

All In-Person Judging - The Team Interviews and Engineering Notebooks will be judged in-person the day of the event. Teams should bring a physical copy of their notebook to submit to the judges.

It should be noted that a good notebook shows the collaborative design process and documents the design process to show that your work is origional.  Additionally, please try to include experimental data when testing mechanisms, programming, driver/auton skills, driving practice, etc.  This data is valuable evidence to support your design choices.
