2019 RoboBoat Judges

Welcome Judges

Thank you for supporting the RoboBoat teams and your future workforce!

image_alt_text

After RoboBoat teams worked hard all year long to prepare their vehicles for competition this June, we were determined to find a way to make all their work worth it. Thanks to your support to act as a virtual judge, we are able to showcase all the teams’ work in online submissions. With your expertise, we hope to still provide these teams a valuable learning experience for them to continue growing their skill set and ultimately prepare them to enter the workforce.

While you won’t have the usual opportunity to interact with the RoboBoat teams and their systems in person, the teams have shared their work in Technical Design Reports, Skills Videos and Websites, for your review and scoring. All of this will lead up to a virtual celebration to announce awards, at the end of June.

 

Let’s get started:

  1. Review important dates & assignments
  2. Download supporting documents
  3. Review & evaluate teams’ submissions
  4. Complete scores via online evaluation forms
  5. Send questions to Janelle Curtis
