General Info


Teams must be registered on as a TVRC team for the 2020-21 season and be registered for the 2021 National TSA Conference. Registration on Robot Events is free.

Team Submissions:

Each team will be required to submit an electronic Engineering Notebook (can be a scanned copy of a handwritten notebook). This notebook will show the design process for a robot that is designed to play this year’s VIQC: Rise Above.

Each team will also create a maximum 3-minute video explaining their design process and showing what they have prepared as part of their finished design. This could include demonstrating their robot playing the game, different functions of their robot (with or without game objects), or if the team does not have a physical robot, they could show drawings and/or models of their design. Not having a physical robot will not reduce the team’s potential score.

The video must be posted to YouTube, SchoolTube or an equivalent platform. Links to Google Drive or Dropbox are not permitted and will result in disqualification.

Teams will be given a link to an Online Challenge page to submit their notebook and a link to their video.

Judging Rubric:

Teams will be judged using the REC Foundation Design Award Rubric found using the following link.

The Engineering design notebook uses page 1 of the rubric and the video will use page 2 of the rubric.

  • Teamwork and communication points for multiple students participating on a team will not be included to allow for one member teams.
  • Respect and courtesy points will not be included due to no direct interaction with the judges.

Judging Process:

Round 1:

Teams will be randomly grouped into groups of 10. The top 5 from each group will move on to the next round.

Round 2:

Teams will be randomly grouped into groups of 10. The top 5 from each group will move on to the next round.

Round 3:

Remaining teams are kept in a single group. The top 10 teams will be ranked in order and submitted to National TSA for recognition.
