  • 1.Awards & Judging Linda King & Lori Lazuk June 2, 2015
  • 2.BEST Philosophy Page 2 The students will get the most from the process if they do the work Mentors and Teachers should help the students realize the students’ ideas The six-week development process is more important than the game-day competition BEST does not stand for “Beat Every Single Team” BEAT EVERY SINGLE TEAM
  • 3.Mandatory Awards (1 of 2) Robotics Competition (Game) - Awarded to the teams whose machines finish 1st, 2nd, 3rd & 4th Every team must submit a Project Engineering Notebook to compete Robotics Competition (Game) includes: seeding round matches determine 7 of 8 semi-finalists 1 wild card match – Among the remaining teams with the 4 highest Project Engineering Notebook Scores! This determines the 8th semi-finalist semi-final matches determine 4 finalists final matches determine award ranking Page 3
  • 4.Mandatory Awards (2 of 2) Founders Award For Creative Design Awarded to the team that best uses the engineering process for offensive and defensive capabilities in design Most Robust Machine Awarded to the team whose robot demonstrates excellent reliability during the competition Software / Simulation A NEW AWARD. More information to be provided at Kickoff Event on 12 September Page 4
  • 5.BEST Awards BEST Awards Awarded to the teams who finish first, second and third in the BEST award – an optional team competition described later in this briefing Page 5
  • 6.Optional Awards Sportsmanship Award Awarded to the team displaying the best attributes of sportsmanship and enthusiasm during the competition; selected by the student teams Craftsmanship Award Awarded to the team whose robot exhibits the best workmanship, appearance, fit and finish Most Photogenic Machine Most Elegant Machine Best Marketing Presentation Best Project Engineering Notebook Best Team Exhibit and Interview Best Spirit and Sportsmanship Best Team Web Page Design Best CAD Design Work Best T-shirt Design Best Mascot Best Costume Teacher of the Year Mentor of the Year Exhibit Design & Construction Award Blood, Sweat, and Duct Tape Award Best Middle School Team Best Small School Team Best Rookie Team Page 6 Decide which awards to include – some Options
  • 7.Top Scoring Teams Receive… BEST Award & Game Awards First, Second & Third Place Trophies Individual medallions RM BEST will qualify multiple teams to advance to regional’s in the following order: BEST Award winner, 1st place Game winner, 1st place BEST Award winner, 2nd place Game winner, 2nd place BEST Award winner, 3rd place Game winner, 3rd place Game winner, 4th place, etc. Page 7 Competing Competing in BEST Award Competing in “BEST Award” increases your chance to qualify
  • 8.Read the Rules & Policies… New 2015 Format Single Rules Document w/ Game Rules, Awards & Judging Policy, Kits, etc. Hub Specific Information in a 2nd document with logistics and additional awards Find last year’s Awards & Judging Policies content for reference at: BEST Robotics File Manager- 2014 Awards and Judging Use the score sheets to improve your performance & scores Page 8
  • 9.The Project Engineering Notebook (PEN)Its Importance & Judging Page 9
  • 10.Purpose of the Notebook Required to compete To document the process the team uses to design, build and test the team’s robot. An opportunity to tell the story of your robot Documentation is a critical aspect of the Engineering Process. It provides… A crucial record of the process Critical info to be shared among different groups A checklist against requirements Essential information for new people Page 10 Page 10
  • 11.A Notebook Required to Compete Project Engineering Notebooks are due on Practice Day Every team MUST submit a Project Engineering Notebook – NO EXCEPTIONS! If a notebook is not turned in on Practice Day, your team will NOT be able to compete on Game Day Notebooks will be returned on Game Day Page 11 Page 11
  • 12.KEEP IN MIND that the PEN is A ticket to the Wild Card Match (Just in case your robot had ‘one of those moments’) 30% of the BEST Award score A vital record of your team’s work (which may also be useful in portfolios, applications, etc.) Page 12
  • 13.Page 13 Judging the Notebook ALL notebooks are judged using the BRI score sheet & rubrics Use the score sheet to assist you in writing/organizing your notebook The Table of Contents should have a listing for each section on the score sheet section. This helps the Team and the Judges! Reference amplifying information in the appendix. Scoring process - each judge scores the same section on every team’s notebook Page 13
  • 14.Page 14 Notebook Examples Think like a judge in preparing the PEN! Review two sample notebook Table of Contents 2009 Wichita Homeschool 2012 STEM Academy Use the 2014 Score Sheet to discuss / evaluate the Table of Contents New in 2015 will be a Score Sheet Software Simulation addition which will change scoring

  • 18.PEN Judging Exercise Review the Brainstorming Approaches in the 2009 Project Engineering Notebook submitted by Wichita Home School. Use the 2014 PEN Score Sheet – Design Approach - Brainstorming Approaches Use the 2014 Suggested Rubric on next page Page 18
  • 19.Scoring Brainstorming Approaches 2014 Notebook Score Sheet: How well organized and productive was the brainstorming approach used and documented? 2014 Suggested Rubric: 21 - 25: Approach is explicitly identified. Organization and productivity are obvious. Explanation is thorough. 16 - 20: Approach is identified. Organization and productivity are discernible. There is some explanation. 11 - 15: Approach is not identified. There is some discussion of brainstorming. 6 - 10: Discussion of approach is minimal. 1 - 5: You can tell there were ideas generated. 0: No discernible brainstorming. Page 19
