I had to laugh, only because my recollection of the tournaments (it's been a few years ...) was that they're quite noisy and chaotic.  The idea that anything coming out of the robot's little speaker would be a noisy distraction seems pretty farfetched.  The reality is you're unlikely to even hear it in the competition.  In the quiet room where the judges are scoring the kids on their design they may be able to appreciate the musical features better, and it shows creativity!

I'm sure you'll be fine!

Subject: [VADCFLL-L] Robot programming - sounds permitted?

Last minute rookie question:  My team is very focused on music (in fact, their research/project deals with learning music).  In programming the robot missions, they made the robot make a sound (a beep) after it completes several missions.  I don’t see anything against this in rules, but wondering if it might be considered a distraction to the other team at the robot table. Does anyone have any thoughts on whether I should encourage them to remove the sound from the robot missions?

Much thanks,
