  • Please use headsets if you are in the same room (better: try to be in separate rooms).
  • Please have a minimum of 2 members with mobile phone/camera connected to the design/ cost judging main room to show vehicle details to the judges if requested.
  • Judges may request a sketch or chart during the judging process.
  • Please prepare either a digital solution (e.g., tablet + electronic pencil for Zoom-integrated whiteboard app) or simply use pen/ paper.
  • Break-out-rooms for Engineering Design:

    • Students and judges may move themselves between the breakout rooms as necessary, and also back to the main room.
    • Please note: Depending on your judging group, one judge may be covering more than one area of expertise.
    • Additionally, some teams may have students covering more than one area of expertise. Please clarify with your judging group before moving to the respective breakout room.
