Do you need an FLL Challenge table? If you are in Victoria you can borrow one for free – we’ll just need it back before competitions. Contact uleslie@firstpartners.org if you are interested.

Do you want to buy an FLL Challenge table? A new type of FLL Challenge competition table is available from AndyMark Inc. This table comes apart into three sections and is much lighter and easier to store and to transport than regular tables – and you can use it for competitions, not just for practice. Have a look here.

FLL Challenge judging procedures will likely change for the 2020-2021 season!

Core Values Poster

  • A Core Values Poster can be handy as a talking point during the core values interview and when people visit the team’s pit.

Robot Design Executive Summary

  • For the 2019-20 season we required each team to prepare a short presentation about their robot. This helps in the judging process, and of course it helps the team not to forget any important bits during the interview. Robot Design Executive Summary (PDF)

Competition tables in robot judging rooms

  • Up to the 2019-20 season we had one FLL table set up in each robot design judging room. This will likely change for the 2020-2021 season.

Spectators in judging rooms – rules for the 2019-2020 season

  • No spectators are allowed in the core values interviews.
  • Up to two spectators can accompany their team into the robot design interview. The spectators need to stay back from the judges and the team, and they must not interfere in any way.
  • Anyone is welcome to watch the project presentation interviews. However the spectators need to stay back from the judges and the team, and they must not interfere in any way.
  • No spectators can enter any interview room after the interview has started.

Video / Photography during interviews

  • Spectators are welcome to take video or pictures during the interviews. (Please turn off the camera sound when taking pictures.)
  • We will try to videotape interviews and send the videos to the teams after the tournament.
