To score points for M05, Biomimicry, and generally for all Missions, the scoring condition must be "Visible at the end of the match", i.e. when the 2.5 minute timer expires.

So, it doesn't matter how long the Robot or the White Gecko hangs (is supported by) the Wall, as long as it is true at the instant that the match ends.

In practical terms, the robot or Gecko has to be supported long enough that the referee can confirm it.

There would not be a penalty to remove the Robot from the wall after the match is over. (R18)

Do you know how long it has to hang on the wall? Is there a penalty to get it off the wall?  Thx.

It is the robot that the kids build.

Can anyone help me understand what is meant by:

"All the weight of the Robot: 32 Points"

Should the team build a robot and hang it on the Biomimicry wall? Or
Was there a robot that came with the Field kit? Or
Should the team's Robot with the Brick is asked to hang on the wall?
I only received the white Gecko and I am not sure, what M05 meant by "... if the Robot itself can get onto the wall."
