You will be required to present your Project presentation during the first 5 minutes of your judging session. The 5-minute time limit includes your setup. The judging area will have six chairs and a rectangular table for the team. Projectors will not be provided in judging rooms. You will be required to provide any support equipment needed for your presentation. Remember – all presentations must be in English, and they must be live presentations. Pre-recorded video presentations are not permitted.
NOTE: You will be presenting in a small area to two or three judges, so a PowerPoint presentation can be shown right from your laptop computer screen that can be placed on the judges’ table. We recommend simple, low-technical presentations, which require less support and are less likely to fail during your judging session.
Core Values Judging/Core Values Poster:
Your team will be required to complete a surprise teamwork activity during the first 5 minutes of your Core Values judging session. Your team will have 2 minutes to present your Core Values Poster (located in the Challenge Guide
), which is required for Core Values judging at World Festival. The following 8 minutes are reserved for the judges to ask your team questions.
Robot Design Judging/Robot Design Executive Summary:
In Robot Design judging, your team will find a practice table with the HYDRO DYNAMICSSM
mat and field for your team to discuss your design process and game strategy with the judges. You will be required to give a 4 minute Robot Design Executive Summary (located in the Challenge Guide
). Your team will have the opportunity to answer the judges’ questions for the remainder of your judging session.
Spectators during judging:
Each team may bring 2 coaches and 4 spectators in their judging sessions. Each team will be given 4 spectator buttons in their registration packet. Spectator buttons must be allocated prior to the start of the team’s first judging session, and must remain unchanged for the full duration of judging. Spectators can take pictures and videos, but will be limited to the spectator viewing area so they do not distract the team or judges. Videotaping of the presentations is allowed, however; coaches and spectators must remain in the designated spectator area in each judging area.
All cell phones (team members & coaches) must be turned off during the judging sessions.
