1. Purpose of the Contest

To provide competitors with the opportunity to demonstrate both through practical and

theoretical application, their skills and task knowledge in the industry must be relevant

to:

• Simple mechanical design and construction using LEGO Components.

• Problem solving in relation to provided challenges

2. Contest Description

There will be 3 challenges to this competition and all teams will bring the same

necessary materials to solve them. All three challenges must be attempted by every

team. There is no programming component to this challenge. The Lego Brain Hub will

be used in the default setting to be a power supply and motor/sensor connector. A

copy of the contest and instructions will be provided on site on the day of the

competition. Competitors will be provided with approximately 3 hours to complete the

challenges and will be scored and marked accordingly by judges. Teams may attempt

challenges in any order and have numerous practice runs as long as the challenge is

not being used by another team. If more than one team is at a challenge then they will

alternate turns. However, official scoring runs by a judge will take precedence over

practice runs.

3. JUDGING CRITERIA

Challenge 1: /27

Challenge 2: /27

Challenge 3: /27

Teamwork and Enthusiasm: /19 broken down as follows:

a.Collaboration: all members working together and listening to each other /6

b.Design Process: planned development & uniqueness of problem solving /6

c.Enthusiasm: team spirit, initiative and positive-talk /7

Each challenge will be weighed equally. Each team will only be allowed 3 official

judged scoring attempts. The best score of the 3 attempts will determine the team's

score. The total combined scores of the three challenges in combination of the

Teamwork and Enthusiasm component will determine the final standings.

There can be no ties – if the scores are even after the contest, then the highest total

combined points for the 3 challenges will be used as the tie breaker.
