    Q: Can a team show videos of the robot in the presentation to the Judges? Are there rules about the presentation?
    A: The presentation portion of judging interview is exactly 5 minutes, and must be presented "live". Teams may show a video of their robot during the 5 minute presentation period, but the video must not include sound and team must narrate the video during the interview.

      Q: Will the Judges be able to or allowed to reference external materials (web sites, youtube videos, etc.) that are mentioned in the Engineering Portfolio?
      A: Like at a traditional event, judges will not access materials that are not presented as part of the judging interview. Judges are instructed to only use information that is presented to them and are generally instructed not to follow links, etc. The only exception is for the Control Award submission which specifically calls out a video link that will demonstrate the control features that the team wants to highlight.

        Q: Will teams be allowed to reference their own Engineering Portfolio during "pit judging" as if they were referencing their pit display (posters, pictures, etc.)? With remote events, teams won't have the ability to showcase things in their pits.
        A: Teams will be permitted to reference their own engineering portfolio, engineering notebook, pictures or video to answer judges questions during the second interview phase of judging.

            Q: During the judging interview or pit interview, will students be able to stream video to show or demo their robot?
            A: The technical capability for this will exist, but we do not recommend it. Trying to get the streaming to work during the interview could take up precious time that a team would need with the judges. We encourage using photos or pre-recorded video to show the judges the robot when needed.

              Q: How long can the control award video submission be?
              A: The control award video submission should show the functions that your team has described on your control award submission sheet. Video's should ideally be a minute or less, but we will view videos up to 2.5 minutes long.
