I’ve answered this question a few times for folks off-list, so I’m posting here to hopefully save someone from asking late in the game and having to scramble:


There will not be any AV equipment supplied by the school or FLL in any of the presentation rooms, so teams should not expect there to be. They can bring equipment if necessary (projector, etc.), but the KISS principle applies, as well as problem anticipation—what if the bulb decides to die from the journey? (Bring a spare.) What if there’s no outlet nearby? (Bring an extension cord.)


Also, remember that setup time comes out of the five minutes for the presentation, and in general, the kids should be doing the setup unless there’s a compelling reason (e.g., I remember one team who had no projector, and instead lugged in a heavy tube-type TV, which the coach had to carry).
