Also, even if they fell over and did touch the mat, the following applies for the FLL Rules;


Pre-Match Preparation


When you walk up to a field to compete on time, you’re allowed at least one minute to prepare and arrange your inactive robot and any objects it will be moving or using. 

You must use the mission models supplied by the tournament and may not bring duplicates to the competition area. 

You may NOT: 

take mission models apart. 

lock or attach mission models to the robot. 

lock or attach mission models to each other. 

lock or attach anything to mission models. 

touch mission models out of Base for any strategic purpose. 

download anywhere near the competition area.

Three or more red/white citizens touching the pink grid area is worth 10 points. Three or more blue/gray leaders touching the tall, green mountain and/or city is worth 10 points. Three or more black/white scientists touching the research area is worth 10 points. 






The answer is no according to the mission and the definition of touching. The LEGO people would no longer be touching the mat if they were attached to a brick.

I see nothing anywhere on the screen resembling in any way "complete
rotations before continuing."  Can you tell me more exactly where to look?

Thanks.

Check to see if you have "complete rotations before contining" (or something

like that) selected bottom right of the control panel.  If you are trying to

turn the arm say 180 degrees and it is getting stuck  and has only turned 
179 degrees, it will keep trying to turn and not finish the routine or go to

the next step.     This can happen if the kids are starting the arm 1/2 up, 
for example.  De-select that option to keep this from happening.
