This event is open to the general public and to the media. The event will be held in the gymnasium, and the pit area will be in the adjacent multipurpose room. Audience seating will be on wooden bleachers. Guests planning to stay for the entire event may want to bring seat cushions. Each team’s four performance rounds will be spaced 40-60 minutes apart. The three judging sessions (Project, Robot Design and Core Values) will be scheduled before or between the performance rounds. Teams will often go directly from one activity to the next.

A document with detailed tournament logistics will be distributed to teams and posted on the website approximately two weeks before the event.
