Robot Design Judging:  Be ready to talk about what your robot can do, and
how you designed it and programmed it to work on the Challenge missions,
and why you made the choices you did.  The judges will have a Robot Game
table, and will probably ask you to demonstrate one or two of your favorite

Core Values Judging:  The judges will give you a few minutes to work as a
team on a secret task.  Then they'll spend about 5 minutes asking you
questions so they can see how your team understands and lives the FLL Core
Values.  By the way, the secret task is just for fun--the judges are really
mostly interested in how you work together!

Optional--Core Values Poster/Robot Design Executive Summary:  The FLL
Judging and Awards page mentions an optional Core Values poster and Robot
Design summary.  We do not require these in Virginia-DC FLL.  As several
coaches have commented, these types of poster can be used to enhance
visibility for other teams and judges of the key aspects of your team's
demonstration of the core values promoted by FIRST or your design
principles and proces.  They can be displayed at your pit and brought into
the judging session to help facilitate discussions.  Mostly, thinking about
what you would put on a poster will help your team to review what you'd
like to discuss with the judges.
