Judges move around between teams’ positions and are directly involved with reviewing teams’ performances. No specific robotics or Ecobot experience is required, but a familiarity with the game rules and objectives is needed and will be provided prior to Challenge Day - including a webinar with Q & A. This is a fun, friendly visit to each team to view their robot mission and game models, ask them questions, and provide positive feedback. Judges work in pairs and evaluate teams on presentation style/content, robot skills, and communication/teamwork. Friendly and enthusiastic volunteers should definitely apply!
