Sadly spike prime can't take regular batteries, so we plan to make sure to charge the night before.
Denyse Carroll
26:59
Nice that Spike Prime can charge directly from the USB of your laptop. Unless you buy a block separately, this is not something to charge at a charging station or an outlet.
Skip Morrow
31:58
If the team chooses to introduce themselves, please keep it short. Timeline is very important.
Savio Thomas
32:42
is this introduction in a private room with Judges or with the public on a mic / on stage?
Srini Rangi
33:10
How many judges will be in the room?
Juliet Bellinger
34:01

41:57
I have a couple of questions.
Denyse Carroll
42:35
Can we help?
Nutan Sakhare
44:06
1. Some years ago, there was a part of the event where the team would be in a room and do a innovation team project. It was a noodle bridge so will that part of the event be there in the event?
Marshall Eaglebots
44:24
How does getting a develop on the Robot Game Table affect the scores?
Deepa Malgan
45:14
If Robo is in launch area or Home area can we pick by hand and give to the people in other Launch Area
Skip Morrow
45:51
For the ref: M11-Hydroelectric dam. We have seen a couple of times where the water was released, but didn't fall cleanly into the lower part, so the energy was not released. Is this a malfunction that we shouldn't worry about?
Denyse Carroll
45:55
There are no longer core values activities. The students will be observed for their CV during the judging
Senthil Nagappan
47:27
I have 3 kids with 8 years in my team one turns 9 in November. Will they be able to enroll online
Savio Thomas
48:03
Can i get more examples of an innovation project?
Sean DeArras
48:53
There was a clarification in a rules update that it can't be handed between launch areas
Madhu Narla
49:42
Can teams standing outside the line can move in and out with technicians in any launch area?
Nutan Sakhare
50:21
While the game is running is the team allowed to swap technicians with non-technicians?
Sean DeArras
52:10
Best way we've found to describe it is that there is an invisible wall dividing the left and right side, nothing can cross it.
Nutan Sakhare
54:02
what happens if the map gets folded during the main event or more likely could the map get damaged causing any harm to our run?
Sean DeArras
54:04
Sorry, that wasn't a question
Skip Morrow
55:35
Here's our project from last year. Note that teams should not be recording videos and expect to go into the judging and "just press play". It is expected that the presentation is a live, in-person presentation. Videos we needed last year, but not this year. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aZ2c2CIx5Ig
Sean DeArras
56:26
What type of tape do you expect to be used?
Nutan Sakhare
56:51
Thank you
Madhu Narla
57:03
Are the tapes going to be only on Left and Right but not on top and bottom?
David Shin
01:00:09
That’s a great idea. thanks!
Savio Thomas
01:00:22
Does the robot have to land perfectly in the launch area after completing a mission? can the Robot during launch have an extension arm partially go beyond the boundary of launch(this part is attached to the robot but extended beyond the boundary in terms of air space not on the mat floor)
Sean DeArras
01:00:55
We had a couple parents start a second team at our school this year due to the turn out. So glad to see so many interested.
Savio Thomas
01:01:44
that also i air space
Savio Thomas
01:01:54

Marshall Eaglebots
01:03:16
If we accidentally missed our robot game time, can we redo that round at the end of all the Robot games?
Sean DeArras
01:04:03
Sorry for so many tape questions. How far onto the mat will the tape extend? My team has been aligning to the edge of the mat and I want to try and get it as close to what they should expect. Also, is the tape full width (duct tape) or half width?
Juliet Bellinger
01:05:06
And that would impact mission 5, too, if teams missed their time.
Madhu Narla
01:05:30
Will there be any gap between the mat and the edge of the table especially the bottom side of the table
K K
01:06:04
Mat and wall : is there any space between them
Sean DeArras
01:06:08
Thank you!
K K
01:09:26
Gravious professionalism, how will it be measured at the table? Will the judges be really looking? Last year i dont think they followed. it was crowded around the table as well
DAVID MELTON
