I hope one of the things FLL will consider is using an electronic scoring sheet after the rounds. Kids remember expected scores better than actually checking off each mission.

If the scores are  lower than expected it is easier to spot the misses.

I understand kids have to be responsible etc but there is sometimes lot of chaos after a particular round.

Thanks

My two cents: I think simplest way to say it is: if you pulled and other team pushed the solar panel you should have received 22 points and they 40.

Totally possible refs missed it.  E.g. not related to Solar, but in ours once they missed we had the gas core and once missed we did food production.  (And overall I think our volunteer refs were great - they graciously changed the sheet when it was pointed out to them).

Hate to waste learning time having the kids practicing to make sure they understand the scoring sheet [though we spent plenty of learning time having them practice the robot runs], but handling potential errors is a good way for them to learn respectful communication [and not a bad lesson to make sure they completely understand something before signing it].

We had a question about solar array score that some clarification would help. Our strategy was to pull the panel. In the first round we pulled but got 0 points. Am pretty sure that the other team pushed their panel. Needless the team changed the program to pushing it to be safe. Looking at the mission write up it says potential scores can be 40 as well. Can someone please explain how can that be achieved?

Mission

Solar panels need to be angled toward or away from you, depending on strategy and conditions.

Scores

  *   Both solar panels are angled toward the same field: 22 (for both teams)

  *   Your solar panel is angled toward the other team’s field: 18

  *   Possible scores: 0, 18, 22, 40


Thanks.
