Exhibit and Interview Guidelines

   Check with local hub for standard table size.  At regional championships, each team will be provided with a standard six-foot long table (approximately 29 inches wide) upon request.

   Check with local hub for maximum allowed floor space for exhibits. An 8 X 8 X 8 exhibit space will be allocated per team at the regional championships.

   Skirting for the table will not be provided.

   Each team should bring one extension cord and one power strip. Check with local hub for possible electricity and electrical limitations.

   Other exhibit items may be used, but must not exceed the space allocated by the hub.

   Teams are encouraged to avoid using expensive store-bought display boards and structures and opt for more creative and hand-made exhibit props.

   Any audio-visual equipment needs and extra extension cords will be the responsibility of the team.

   Each team is responsible for security of its own material.

   Each team is also responsible for breakdown of its team materials and clean-up of its exhibit area following the awards ceremony on Game Day.

   All material should be clearly marked with the appropriate identification and contact information.

   Check with the local hub concerning when and where team exhibits can be set up.

   As a general rules, candy and other food and drink items are not permitted at exhibits as complimentary handouts. Check with local hub or regional championship policies concerning this rule.

   During the designated interview time, at least one student representative from the team must be present who is able to respond to informal questions asked about the exhibit. In addition, student representatives should be aware that judges may ask questions concerning robot design and construction.  These questions will be part of the interview evaluation of the team.

   Teams should expect to be visited by three to four different judges during this period.

   Judges may also interview team members in the pit area and in the seating area.
