Judging Criteria & Review
Well, we are preparing for the final competition for this year. This is really important, because if we do incredibly well we might be selected to go to the Nationals. Everyone is really looking forward to this, but we're a little nervous.

We have just reviewed the judging criteria for this upcoming event. That is the sheet letting you know what you will be graded on in the competition, and what things the judges are looking for. This is a big aid, because it both tells us what to expect, and it helps us grade ourselves here. We can also know if we need to  change anything.

As I have been reading over the criteria, I noticed that most of the things that needed to be changed were not in our research presentation or our robot. In fact, what we need to improve is was our answers to the judges. For example; if a judge asked us about our programming we might want to point out that we have loops in our program.

This is really is something our team needs to focus on. I think it will give us a better chance at the Champion's Award if we work on it.
