Team judging begins at 8:00 a.m. Please be prompt.  Each Team will have a ten to fifteen minute “fact-finding” interview with a panel of two or three judges. At the start of the interview, Teams will have a maximum of 5 minutes to present to the judges. After the Team’s five-minute presentation, the judges will have the opportunity to ask questions about the Team, the Robot, and outreach efforts. 

Engineering Portfolios
This year the teams should submit an Engineering Portfolio (not an Engineering Notebook). This is outlined in the Judging Manual.
The Engineering Portfolio should be on paper (not electronic) and should be given to the Judges during the judging interview.

Control Award Submissions
Control Award Submissions, which are optional, should be on paper (not electronic) and should be given to the Judges during the judging interview.

Official Q&A Forum
If you have not already, make sure you check out and review the questions and answers on the FIRST Tech Challenge Official Q&A Forum.  There are currently (as of 11/28) 187 Questions and Answers about Robot build and game play rules in Game Manuals!  More questions and answers are added weekly!
