Judging Format

Practice Interview Judging for Teams 

As this event won't be awarding judged awards, we're allowing team members the opportunity after their skills runs to conduct a practice interview with volunteers and receive feedback on their engineering notebook and robot design. We want to highlight the students' learning from the design process and recognize the students' roles on the team. The practice interview is optional for teams, but we highly encourage team members to participate to practice for their real interviews at future tournaments. 

Electronic Notebook Submission 

Teams who wish to receive feedback on their notebooks must upload it before December 4, 11:59pm HST. We will accept only a digital notebook or scanned copy of their physical notebook. We will not be accepting physical notebooks at the event. Teams will be emailed a Google Drive link and instructions on where to submit their notebook should they wish to receive feedback.
