Judging Format

 In-Person Interview with Digital Notebook Judging

  • The Team Interviews will be judged in-person the day of the event. 
  • Submit your digital engineering notebook on by Oct 21, 11:59PM.


 The submission format of the engineering notebook is digital and all teams will be interviewed in person. The information was not updated on robot events which caused some confusion. I apologize for that, and to compensate, the deadline for notebook submission has been extended to 11:59 PM on Wednesday Oct 26.
