Consent Forms: All participants must have a Participant Release Form on file. It is the responsibility of the Team’s Primary Contact to make sure this occurs. A link to the instructions on how to submit a Participant Release Form is found HERE.

Digital Notebook:

A digital Engineering Notebook (or scanned copy of a written notebook) must be submitted to qualify for the Excellence Award and Design Award. Links to the digital notebooks must be submitted by 5:00 pm on Tuesday, November 1, 2022 if you want it considered for judging. Please make sure your notebook is in a PDF format. If you have a handwritten notebook, it will need to be scanned into a PDF file.

Here is how to upload your notebook:

  1. Scan notebook into a PDF file. The students can do this on their own by using the Genius Scan app from their phones.
  2. Save the PDF file into a shared drive like Google Drive or One Drive.
  3. Get the link to the file and make sure the file can be viewed by anyone with the link.
  4. Go to your Robot Events account and click on the My Account tab. Next to each registered team on the right side you will see a button called Engineering Notebooks. 
  5. Click on the Engineering Notebooks button next to the team and paste the file link. Make sure to save after you enter the link.

The notebook is only shared with event staff, including the Event Partner, Judge Advisor, and Judges, and may include the REC Foundation RSM. Details on this process are given in the Judge Guide Addendum.

Inspection: Inspection is scheduled first thing in the morning. All teams must pass inspection to be allowed to compete in either skills or qualification matches. Please be prepared and ensure that your robot will pass inspection BEFORE the competition by reviewing the INSPECTION CHECKLIST.

Interviews: All teams will be interviewed in-person at the event. Judges will come to interview teams in the morning prior to qualification matches and will leave a note at your table if they miss you. Please leave a representative at your pit area at all times so they can come get you when the judges are ready for your team.
