  16. A. Central Challenge - Section 1 Intent of the Challenge: • To solve this Challenge, the team must design and build Vehicles that will travel to and stop in Scoring Zones, while attempting to avoid the Danger Zone. • The team will try to score the highest possible number of Zone points while also choosing the level of Danger (risk and reward) it wishes to assume. • The team will integrate the Vehicle travel into an original Story about dangers faced by vehicles, told from the point of view of one or more vehicles.

  17. A. Central Challenge – Section 2 2. Vehicles: The team will design and build small Vehicles that will travel from the Start Zone to other Zones on the Site. For the purpose of this Challenge, a Vehicle is a device that can be propelled over a distance. It must be a land Vehicle, traveling on the floor on its way to the scoring Zones. Minor unintentional bouncing or skipping will be allowed, but any Vehicle that is not designed with the intent of traveling on the floor will earn no points for D.1. a. The team will choose how many Vehicles it will use in the Presentation,with a minimum of three (3) Vehicles and a maximum of ten (10) Vehicles allowed. b. Any Vehicle may have the same design, Power Source[s] and construction as another Vehicle, or it may be different. c. Each Vehicle must have a unique and clearly marked number from 1 to 10.No Vehicle will be allowed to leave the Prep Area unless it has a number on it. Vehicle numbers may not be changed or switched between Vehiclesafter leaving the Prep Area.

  18. Questions for Appraiser Training Challenge A: In the Zone • 1) The team arrives in the Prep Area with un-numbered Vehicles. What do you do? • a. Ask the team to number the Vehicles. • b. Disqualify all the Vehicles since they are not numbered. (A.2.c) • c. Let the team number the Vehicles in the Prep Area but assess an Illegal Procedure deduction for not reading the Challenge. • d. Do nothing; the main Challenge Appraisers will sort it out.

  19. Questions for Appraiser Training Challenge A: In the Zone 15) One of the team's Vehicles is moving across the floor and bounces off the ground after hitting a bump in the floor and ends in Zone 5. As an Appraiser, how should you score the Vehicle? a. Score zero Zone Points (D.1.a) for all Vehicles. b. Score zero Zone Points (D.1.a) for that Vehicle only because it didn’t travel across the floor. c. Score 5 Zone Points d. Award extra points for Theatrical effect (D.4.c) since it looked cool.

  20. Questions for Appraiser Training Challenge A: In the Zone 1) a. is correct. You want to give the team every chance to correct any Vehicle problems in the Prep Area before they present. This also includes incorrect numbering or size issues. The Prep Area is the place to try to fix problems that could cost the team points during their Presentation. Extra time to fix issues should not be given to the team if it will cause a delay. 15) c. is correct. The team’s intent was that the Vehicle was designed to be a land Vehicle. Section A.2 of the Challenge states that minor unintentional bouncing or skipping by the Vehicles will be allowed.

  21. A. Central Challenge – Section 2 • Each Vehicle, at the time of measurement, must fit within a 6in x 6in x 6in cube or box.Any Vehicle that does not meet this size requirement will earn no points for D.1. i. Vehicles will be measured in the Prep Area prior to the team’s Presentation. At the discretion of the Appraisal Team, Vehicles may be measured a second time at the completion of the team’s Presentation. Any parts or decorations that have accidentally fallen off Vehicles will not be considered to be part of the Vehicle at the end of the Presentation. Vehicles that are designed or engineered to intentionally lose parts during their Zone travel will be treated as oversized vehicles. ii. No additional item(s) may be added to any Vehicle after it has been measured in the Prep Area. Replacement of defective or damaged parts is allowed only for Vehicles that have not yet traveled outside the Start Zone.Replacement parts must be similar to those parts being replaced. Vehicles may not be replaced in their entirety.

  22. Questions for Appraiser Training Challenge A: In the Zone 2) The team adds several loops of duct tape to each Vehicle just before it leaves the Start Area. How should you score the changed Vehicles? a. Score normally. The team did nothing contrary to the Challenge rules. b. Score normally. Adding the tape loops didn’t make the Vehicles larger than 6in x 6in x 6in. c. Score each modified Vehicle zero.

  23. Questions for Appraiser Training Challenge A: In the Zone 3) The team repairs a Vehicle using a replacement part that is the same as the broken part and duct tape that was not originally on the Vehicle. The Vehicle still fits in the 6in x 6in x 6in box after the repairs. How do you score the repaired Vehicle? a. Score normally since the size is still allowable. b. The repaired Vehicle scores zero because the team added items that were not on the original Vehicle in addition to the replacement parts. (A.2.d.ii) c. Score normally since replacement parts are allowed by the Challenge. (A.2.d.ii)

  24. Questions for Appraiser Training Challenge A: In the Zone 13) A team decides that they are going to number their three Vehicles 4, 7, and 10. Is this allowed? 14) Can a Vehicle change size during the 8-minute Presentation Time?

  25. Questions for Appraiser Training Challenge A: In the Zone 2) c. is correct. The team is not allowed to add anything to the Vehicles after they are measured in the Prep Area (A.2.d.ii) other than replacement parts. It makes no difference that the addition did not change the Vehicle size. 3) a. and c are both correct. As long as the tape was used just to facilitate repairs to the Vehicle and it did not make the Vehicle oversized you would score the repaired Vehicle normally. 13) Yes: In section A.2.c.it states “Each Vehicle must have a unique and clearly marked number from 1 to 10.” It does not say that they must be consecutive. 14) Yes: As long as it is less than 6in x 6in x 6in when it is measured in the Prep Area, and it is less than 6in x 6in x 6in when Time is called at the end of the Presentation, the Challenge does not say it cannot be larger during the 8-minute Presentation time.

  26. A. Central Challenge – Section 2 • Each Vehicle will be propelled by a team-designed Propulsion System[s].Teams must use three or more different types of Power Sources from the following list to propel their Vehicles. Each Vehicle may use one or more than one Propulsion System. The team will select only three types of Power Sources to be considered for their Propulsion System score (D.2.a). i. Wind-up: Vehicle is propelled using energy stored through a tensioned or compressed mechanical system. ii. Pneumatic: Vehicle is propelled using energy from moving or stored gas or air. iii. Gravity: Vehicle is propelled by gravitational force. Vehicles may only be released (no outside forces added). Team members may not push Vehicles. iv. Electric Motor: Vehicle is propelled by a device that converts electrical energy to mechanical energy. • Hydraulic: Vehicle is propelled by liquid pressure and flow. • Thermal: Vehicle is propelled using temperature change to perform mechanical work. Please refer to the section on Safety in Rules of the Road for more on Team Challenge safety guidelines. • Magnetic: Vehicle is propelled by the attraction or repulsion of objects’ magnetic fields.

  27. Questions for Appraiser Training Challenge A: In the Zone 4) The team has 2 identical wind-up Vehicles that launch down a ramp and an electric Vehicle. How do you score the Propulsion Systems in D.2.a? a. Score the electric system normally in D.2.a.i and split your score for the wind-up between D.2.a.ii and D.2.a.iii b. Score D.2.a.i-iii all zero because there were not 3 different Propulsion Systems c. Score the electric system normally in D.2.a.i and the wind-up system normally in D.2.a.ii. Score zero in D.2.a.iii because there was not a third type of Propulsion System. d. Score the electric system normally in D.2.a.i, the first wind-up system normally in D.2.a.ii and the second wind-up system normally in D.2.a.iii

  28. Questions for Appraiser Training Challenge A: In the Zone 4) c. is correct. The team does not have 3 different Propulsion Systems so only the two unique ones can be given a score (A.2.e, Published Clarification #2).

  29. A. Central Challenge – Section 2 • Teams will earn points for the Technical Innovation and Technical Design of each of the three selected Propulsion Systems. Teams will also earn points for the Technical Innovation and Technical Design of a team-selected Vehicle.

  30. Questions for Appraiser Training Challenge A: In the Zone 11) The team describes a Propulsion System on Tournament Data Form as a wind-up Power Source is used in conjunction with a second Power Source, gravity. How do you score the Propulsion System containing the wind-up and gravity Power Sources? a. You score the Propulsion System based on both Power Sources b. You score the Propulsion System zero because it used two Power Sources c. You score only the wind-up component of the Propulsion System

  31. Questions for Appraiser Training Challenge A: In the Zone 12) The team has listed Vehicle #2 on their Tournament Data Form to be scored for Technical Design and Innovation. Vehicle #2 is damaged in transit, so they decide to not use it in their Presentation and the team tells the Prep Area Appraiser that Vehicle #5 should be scored in D.2.b. The Vehicle # is not changed on the Tournament Data Forms given to the Appraisal team. How do you score D.2.b? a. Score normally for Vehicle #5 b. Score zeros since the Tournament Data Form states Vehicle #2 should be scored and it was not used in the Presentation. c. Ask to see Vehicle #2 after the Presentation and score it normally.

  32. Questions for Appraiser Training Challenge A: In the Zone 17) The team has a very innovative Vehicle, but they selected a different Vehicle to be scored on D.2.b. for Technical Design and Innovation. Since you are Appraising this section you should: a. Score the Vehicle that you feel is most innovative b. Score the team selected Vehicle normally c. Score the Vehicle selected by the team but adjust the scores up to include the innovative Vehicle since they didn't really understand d. Talk to the team after the Presentation and give the team an opportunity to select another Vehicle

  33. Questions for Appraiser Training Challenge A: In the Zone 11) a. is correct. Propulsion Systems can use multiple Power Sources (Published Clarification #2) 12) a. is correct. Appraisers should use the Tournament Data Form as a guide for things to watch during the team’s Presentation, but keep in mind that things may change on the day of the Presentation. Score based on what the team wants, not necessarily what is written on the Tournament Data Form. 17) b. is correct. The team’s choice is WHATEVER the team tells you it is. Talk to the team about their Vehicle of choice and why they chose it, then use the scoring rubrics to help guide your score.

  34. A. Central Challenge – Section 3 3. Zones: Solid lines shown in the Site figure will be taped. The dashed lines represent the minimum 20ft (6.1m) x 20ft (6.1m) Site size; dashed lines will not be taped. a. The boundaries of Zone 1 extend past the edges of the minimum 20ft (6.1m) x 20ft (6.1m) Site, if the Site provided is larger than the minimum size. Any Vehicle that comes to a stop outside the Start Zone and does not come to a stop in Zone 5, Zone 10 or the Danger Zone will be considered to be in Zone 1. b. A Vehicle must completely leave the Start Zone to receive Zone points. c. Zone points will be awarded in the following manner: i. If a Vehicle is stopped in Zone 1 at the end of the Presentation, the team will earn 1 point. ii. If a Vehicle is stopped in Zone 5 at the end of the Presentation, the team will earn 5 points. iii. If a Vehicle is stopped in Zone 10 at the end of the Presentation, the team will earn 10 points. iv. If a Vehicle is stopped completely in the Danger Zone, the team will earn no Zone points.

  35. A. Central Challenge – Section 3 d. A Vehicle is considered to be in a Zone if any part of the Vehicle is in that Zone. The Vehicle does not need to be touching the ground to be considered in that Zone.Taped lines are considered to be part of the higher point Zone. e. Any Vehicle that stops between two Zones will receive the higher of the two Zone pointsexceptwhen the Vehicle stops between the Start Zone and Zone 1. In this instance, the Vehicle has not completely left the Start Zone and will not receive Zone points (See A.3.b). f. Team members are allowed to be in all Zones on the Site. Team members may not touch the Vehicle once the Vehicle is completely outside the boundaries of the Start Zone. If a Vehicle that is completely outside the Start Zone is touched, it will receive no Zone points (D.1). g. Vehicles that are bumped or moved by another Vehicle will receive the Zone points for their final location at the end of the Presentation. h. Appraisers will evaluate Vehicle locations following the Presentation. Team members must not pick up or move any Vehicles until Appraisers have completed their scoring.

  36. Questions for Appraiser Training Challenge A: In the Zone 8) The team successfully releases Vehicle #1, which stops in Zone 1. The team successfully releases Vehicle #2 and it pushes Vehicle #1 into Zone 5, then stops with a bumper extending over the Zone 5 taped line. What are the Zone Scores for the two Vehicles? a. Vehicle #1 = 0, Vehicle #2 = 5 b. Vehicle #1 = 5, Vehicle #2 = 1 c. Vehicle #1 = 0, Vehicle #2 = 1 d. Vehicle #1 = 5, Vehicle #2 = 5

  37. Questions for Appraiser Training Challenge A: In the Zone 8) d. is correct. Vehicle #1 is in Zone 5, so it gets 5 points. Vehicles are allowed to touch another Vehicle (A.4.g) and points are awarded based on where the Vehicle is at the end of the Presentation, not where it originally stopped (A.3.g). Vehicle #2 is also in Zone 5 so gets 5 points. A Vehicle is in the Zone if any part of the Vehicle is in the Zone (A.3.d). The Zones are 3-dimensional, so a Vehicle does not have to have to be touching the Zone. When a Vehicle is in two Zones, it will receive the higher Zone Score (A.3.e).

  38. A. Central Challenge – Section 4 • Travel: Teams must release their Vehicles one at a time from any location within the Start Zone. Team members must not push or directly provide the propulsion needed for travel. All Vehicles must leave the Start Zone and travel using one or more Power Sources from the list provided in A.2.e.Vehicles that do not meet the travel requirements outlined here will earn no Zone points (D.1). • Team members may release their Vehicles in any order. • Vehicles must begin their travel from completely within the Start Zone. • Teams must not release any Vehicle until the previously released Vehicle is entirely out of the Start Zone. Vehicles released when a previously released Vehicle is still in the Start Zone will earn no Zone points. • Vehicles cannot be attached to each other in any manner as they leave the Start Zone. • External guidance that is entirely contained within the Start Zone is allowed. • Vehicles must travel freely after leaving the Start Zone. No tracks, tunnels or other means that direct the Vehicles may be used outside the Start Zone. Anything needed to propel or direct the Vehicles must remain in the Start Zone or be on the Vehicles. TEAMS MAY NOT USE TEAM-CONTROLLED EXTERNAL DEVICES SUCH AS ELECTRONIC OR MECHANICAL REMOTE CONTROLS TO DIRECT THE MOTION OF THE VEHICLES. • Traveling Vehicles are allowed to touch other Vehicles that have been released for score. Teams are not permitted to use barriers, walls, props or other items on the Site, intentionally or unintentionally, to physically assist the stopping or directing of any Vehicle. A Vehicle will earn no Zone points (D.1) if it touches anything other than another Vehicle and the tournament-provided floor during its travel.

  39. A. Central Challenge – Section 4 • Teams will earn points for the Technical Design and Innovation of the methods used by the Vehicles to travel accurately and to stop by themselves.

  40. Questions for Appraiser Training Challenge A: In the Zone 5) Vehicle #1 is released and partially leaves the Start Zone. Then the Propulsion System breaks. The team pulls it back into the Start Zone and begins repairs. In the meantime, Vehicle #2 is released and stops in Zone 1. Repairs are successfully completed and Vehicle #1 is re- released and travels to Zone 5. What are the Zone Scores for these Vehicles? a. Vehicle #1 = 0, Vehicle #2 = 0 b. Vehicle #1 = 5, Vehicle #2 = 0 c. Vehicle #1 = 0, Vehicle #2 = 1 d. Vehicle #1 = 5, Vehicle #2 = 1

  41. Questions for Appraiser Training Challenge A: In the Zone 7) The team is using a ramp for a gravity propelled Vehicle. The ramp is slightly larger than the Start Area. The team releases Vehicle #3 (not the Danger Points Vehicle) with no outside forces added and it rolls to a stop in Zone 5. What is the Zone score for this Vehicle? a. 5 points b. 1 point c. 0 points d. 25 points 19) The team has a Vehicle that follows the light from a flashlight. The flashlight is on a pole in the Start Zone. Is this OK?

  42. Questions for Appraiser Training Challenge A: In the Zone 18) The team has a Vehicle that is measured in Prep and met the 6in x 6in x 6in dimension requirements. During the Presentation the Vehicle sprouts a sail and then retracts it before the end of the Presentation. It looks like it may now be larger than before. You should: a. Re-measure the Vehicle after the Presentation. If it is still inside the allowable dimensions score normally. b. Re- measure the Vehicle after the Presentation. If it is larger than allowable dimensions score zero for that Vehicle in D.1. c. Wait to see if anyone else notices. If not, then score normally. d. Since it looks too large, score zero for that Vehicle on D.1

  43. Questions for Appraiser Training Challenge A: In the Zone 5) b. is correct. Vehicle #2 scores zero because it was released before the previously released Vehicle completely left the Start Zone (A.4.c). Vehicle #1 scores normally. 7) c. is correct. The Vehicle scores Zero Zone points. The ramp extending outside of the Start Zone violated Challenge rule A.4.f, which states that anything needed to propel the Vehicle must remain in the Start Zone. 19) Yes, as long as it is stationary. External guidance that is entirely contained within the Start Zone is acceptable (A.4.e). It is not acceptable if they are manipulating or moving the flashlight, as this would make it a team-controlled external device (A.4.f). 18) a. & b. are correct. Section A.2.d.i of the Challenge says, at the discretion of the Appraisal Team, Vehicles may be measured a second time at the completion of the team’s Presentation. If any member of the Appraisal Team is not sure if the Vehicle still meets the size requirements, you should re- measure the Vehicle after the Presentation is over.

  44. A. Central Challenge – Section 5 • Danger Points: This Challenge includes a Danger Points decision that will require strategic planning and quick thinking for teams to be successful. While in the Launch Area, teams will randomly draw the number of one of their Vehicles. All teams will have one minute to make their Danger Points decision after the number is drawn. The team’s decision will be based on the following information: • The team may choose not to accept any level of Danger. In this case, no Danger Points will be added or deducted. • The team may choose to accept the Danger. Points will be awarded in the following manner: • If the randomly selected Vehicle is stopped in Zone 1 at the end of the Presentation, the team will earn 10 extra Danger Points. • If the randomly selected Vehicle is stopped in Zone 5 at the end of the Presentation, the team will earn 25 extra Danger Points. • If the randomly selected Vehicle is stopped in Zone 10 at the end of the Presentation, the team will earn 50 extra Danger Points. • The team will lose 25 Danger Points if the randomly selected Vehicle does any one of the following: • i. Is stopped completely in the Danger Zone at the end of the Presentation. • ii. Touches any team members or objects except for other Vehicles as it travels. • iii. Is released prior to the previously-released Vehicle completely leaving the Start Zone.

  45. Questions for Appraiser Training Challenge A: In the Zone 6) The team has 5 Vehicles numbered 1-5. The team has Vehicle #5 selected as the Danger Vehicle and chooses to accept the Danger Points. Vehicles #1 through #4 are successfully released and all stop in Zone 1. Vehicle #5 is successfully released and stops in the Danger Zone. What is the team’s Zone score in D.1? a. -21 points (minus) b. 4 points c. -25 points (minus) d. 0 points

  46. Questions for Appraiser Training Challenge A: In the Zone 16) The team draws Vehicle #3 to be scored for the Danger Points, but is concerned that this Vehicle may not be accurate enough. The team elects NOT to accept the Danger Points, but just prior to releasing Vehicle #3 a team member calls that they ARE going for the Danger Points. The Vehicle stops in Zone 10! How do you score Vehicle #3? a. Award 50 points in D.1.b, Danger Points for a perfect run b. Award -25 points in D.1.b for trying to change the Danger Points decision c. Award 0 points in D.1.b, Danger Points; and 10 points in D.1.a, Zone Points d. Wish you were scoring Team Choice Elements

  47. Questions for Appraiser Training Challenge A: In the Zone 6) a. is correct. The team earns 1 Zone point for each Vehicle stopped in Zone 1 (D.1.a) and because they accepted the Danger Points, -25 points (D.1.b) for Vehicle #5 stopping in the Danger Zone (A.5.c). There will be negative point totals in section D.1 this year. 16) c. is correct. A.5 states that while in the Launch Area, teams will randomly draw the number of one of their Vehicles. All teams will have one minute to make their Danger Points decision after the number is drawn. Teams cannot change their minds after the one-minute decision time is up. Although the team did not elect to accept the Danger Points, the Vehicle is still eligible for Zone Points.

  48. A. Central Challenge – Section 6 • Story: Imagine you are a vehicle. Crowded highways, inattentive drivers, road construction or heavy loads can mean daily danger as you go about your business. Split-second decisions can result in either a safe trip to your destination or they can result in accidents or detours. • The team will earn points for the creativity and originality of a team-created Story about a dangerous situation told from the point of view of one or more vehicles that are involved in it. • The team will earn points for integrating the team’s Vehicle travel into the Story. • The team will earn points for the theatrical effect of the characterization of a vehicle[s] by one or more team members.This characterization may involve appearance, mannerisms, dialogue or other methods as chosen by the team.

  49. Questions for Appraiser Training Challenge A: In the Zone 9) The team has a team member who characterizes the Vehicle. The team member has a costume, but the team runs out of time before they get to his part in the Story. He spends the whole Presentation in the Start Zone releasing Vehicles. How do you score D.4.c? a. 0 points. The team never used him in the story. b. You score D.4.c based only on the costume c. You score D.4.c based on the costume and what he told you after the Presentation about his role in the story.

  50. Questions for Appraiser Training Challenge A: In the Zone 9) b. is correct. It is great to talk to the team members about what should have happened, but you can only base your scores on what was presented during the Presentation. Since the costume was worn during the Presentation, it was presented even though it was never actively included in the Story.
