Robot Elimination Ladder and Project Presentation Showcase
This year the teams with the top 8 robot performance scores will be invited to participate in the Robot Elimination Ladder. This is just for fun and gives all of the teams a chance to see how the top performing robots accomplish their high scores. Teams invited to participate will receive buttons to allow them access to the floor during this event. Starting at 3:15 (please make sure your pit is empty!) teams will draw a LEGO brick to determine the starting line-up. Two robots will face-off on an INTO ORBIT competition table. The team that gets the higher score in 2.5 minutes will go on to the next round of the ladder competition. In the case of a tie, the robot that had the higher score during the days competitions will continue. All competitions will be on the video screen! The matches will continue until only one robot remains. No robots should be damaged in this fun activity.
Between elimination rounds teams who have been invited to share their presentation will take center stage in the arena to share their 5-minute project presentation that they shared with the judges earlier in the day. Teams will be nominated by their judging team. Being nominated does not indicate that a team is being considered for an award. This is just a fun activity that all teams and families can enjoy to see creative and unique FIRST LEGO League INTO ORBIT Project Presentations.
Concessions will be available on both Saturday and Sunday at Liberty High School. All proceeds will benefit the Liberty High School Theatre Program. Available items will include nachos, hot dogs, polish, candy/chocolate bars, coke products, water, coffee, hot tea, popcorn, and Pizza Schmizza cheese pizza will be available by the slice after 11 am.
Livestream on Youtube
The Livestream will show all the robot action from the Red and Blue competition tables. Each team will appear at least once on the livestream. Audio will include the announcers, but the music will be cut to stay in compliance with Youtube restrictions. Also broadcast will be the ceremonies. Breaks will show team scores or the cover card.
