Why are the kits sent out prior to the kids having a chance to arrive at school?  We don't even know who will be on the team until the first week, let alone practice all summer.  Am I missing something here?

Yes, you remember correctly that the building instructions were
released much earlier than the challenge last year.

I'm guessing that the underlying issue was that teams were too good at
guessing the missions based on the models.  Teams building their
models as soon as they received them (~now) and practicing over the
summer got a month's headstart over teams that waited until the
challenge was released or who didn't even form until school began.
