Reminder: students need to have uploaded a digital copy of an engineering notebook before 11/11. However, the file may be updated after that date, and students mayl want to have access to this while speaking with judge teams. It is suggested that they have a physical or downloaded copy for their interview.

Judge interviews will begin at 9:AM and will be scheduled. Judges will also observe teams in the pit and competition areas. Judges will be in-person, but some judge teams may have a virtual member as well.
