Thank you, Scott, forthis information!  I am wondering if there are any examples oftechnical notebooks that other teams have put together for RobotDesign?  I was wondering what they look like, how long theyare, etc. and thought maybe other teams had put theirs online? orwould be willing to share what they put in them?
Thanks so much!Amy Nichols

Welcome to the Trash Trekseason.  Everyone is excited about the robot and missions, butthat is just part of First Lego League.   In addition torobot performance, teams will participate in Core Values,Project/Research and Robot Design judging sessions.  These components are a big part of First LEGO League.   Here is some information to help youprepare. Judging RubricJudges use a rubric to scoreteams in the judging rooms.  The rubric for all judging roomscan be downloaded at https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=http-3A__www.firstlegoleague.org_sites_default_files_Official-5FEvent-5FInfo_combined-2Drubrics-2D2015.pdf&d=BQIFaQ&c=eLbWYnpnzycBCgmb7vCI4uqNEB9RSjOdn_5nBEmmeq0&r=J5fb0ELkRoh7TzAGYz99sSMvB-c7i4AC0HDT2OVPrww&m=HXHudTkWPZDkn8-R0IV7EzcJnIx2RkzcnyUWi4SbyaQ&s=8-9SYcqHwYuq7ODkII4HvDbQLrajRRf6WN8cFbb_jbE&e= .  At the end of the tournament, you should receive a copy of therubric for your team.   To prepare, have your team reviewthe rubric.  Team InformationSheetFor each judging room, have aTeam Information Sheet.  You can find the template at https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=http-3A__www.firstlegoleague.org_sites_default_files_Official-5FEvent-5FInfo_TeamInfoSheet-2Dfixed-2D12-2D2-2D11.pdf&d=BQIFaQ&c=eLbWYnpnzycBCgmb7vCI4uqNEB9RSjOdn_5nBEmmeq0&r=J5fb0ELkRoh7TzAGYz99sSMvB-c7i4AC0HDT2OVPrww&m=HXHudTkWPZDkn8-R0IV7EzcJnIx2RkzcnyUWi4SbyaQ&s=tswBsZU8Nji9vuMcrtNabwumy4Wpu7JBf7YCJKXgZ44&e= . The team information sheet helps the judge remember the team.  Also, judges love it when teams introducethemselves.   Project JudgingRoomFor Project, you will have 5minutes, including setup time, to present your solution.  After you present, there will be a 5 minuteQ&A.  Robot DesignThis is an opportunity for theteam to discuss and demonstrate their robot.  Plan for a 10minute judging session.  There will be a mission table setupfor the team to use.  Teams should be prepared to run missionsand discuss how they built and programmed their robot.  Iwould highly recommend having some program print outs.  Notall of your programs, just what you want to highlight.  Ifyour team chooses to prepare a technical notebook that shows theevolution of the strategy, robot and programming, that can bebeneficial.  Core ValuesFor Core Values, teams will begiven a challenge and less than 5 minutes to conduct thechallenge.   After the challenge, there will be a briefQ&A session.  There is very high probability the team willbe asked about Gracious Professionalism, Core Values andCoopertition™.  Judging RoomsJudging sessions are closedsessions.  The team plus 3 observers (two coaches/mentors andone historian are allowed to observe).  You can just send inthe team and no observers.  To demonstrate core values, teamsshould be silent while waiting outside a judging room. Judging rooms are typically class rooms.  You will need bringin all your presentation supplies.  (Note, Robot Design willhave a mission table setup.  You do not need to providemission components.) Helpful Resourceswww.eepurl.com/bpeH5j - StartingPoints Weekly Core ValuesChallenge Newsletterwww.ev3lessons.com – great team resourceswww.techbrick.com  - worksheets, printable mat andelements imageswww.masteringlegorobot.com  - Shared lessons and resourcesfrom an experienced coach and judgewww.fllstartingpoint.com – Shared lessons and resources from anexperienced coach and judge.    www.va-dcfll.org/teams/team-resources - VA-DC FLL ResourcesPage I hope you find thisinformation useful.  First Lego League is a community ofvolunteers and there are many people and resources forteams.    If you have questions about judging,please contact me at [log in to unmask]  If theanswer to your question is likely to benefit the group at large, Iwill respond via the list serve.   I would also encourageyou to volunteer at a tournament.  Volunteering to judge isone the best ways to learn.  Sign-up to volunteer at https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=http-3A__va-2Ddcfll.org_volunteer_volunteer-2Dform_&d=BQIFaQ&c=eLbWYnpnzycBCgmb7vCI4uqNEB9RSjOdn_5nBEmmeq0&r=J5fb0ELkRoh7TzAGYz99sSMvB-c7i4AC0HDT2OVPrww&m=HXHudTkWPZDkn8-R0IV7EzcJnIx2RkzcnyUWi4SbyaQ&s=hWA__E6JJfhIc2EgyllszFrmHVnvOEuX6gA-a4uwSaw&e= . Scott RakestrawJudge [log in to unmask] UNSUBSCRIBE or CHANGE your settings, please visit https://listserv.jmu.edu/archives/vadcfll-l.htmland select "Join or leave the list".
