Robot Design Summary  - REQUIRED FOR CHAMPIONSHIP!!!
When teams enter the Robot Design Judging room they can have 1 to 4-minutes to give a prepared verbal summary about the strategy, design and programming of their robot. This summary will allow your team to consider in advance the most important information to share with the judges. 
The specific areas to address are:

  • Explain how the robot moves around the board and describe how the parts work together to make it move
  • How many attachments did your team build for your robot?
  • How many and what type of sensors does your robot use?
  • Did you program the robot using NXT or EV3 software?
  • How many programs are stored in the NXT / EV3 brick?
  • How consistent are the programs (always successful, mostly successful, sometimes successful)
  • How many missions can your robot attempt to complete?
  • Are there any features of your robot that you feel are special, different, or clever?
  • Finally explain the solution of your favorite mission showing the judges the program and pointing out any specific attachments your robot uses to complete this mission.

The above presentation should be completed in about 1 to 4 minutes. The robot should be placed on the table and the mission should be run.  Note that the favorite mission will be a single robot run from the base that can in fact attempt one or more of the year’s missions. Once the robot finishes that run the judges will then commence with the remaining questioning of the team.

Inclement Weather and Cancellation Policy

Oregon Robotics Tournament and Outreach Program

Inclement Weather and Cancellation Policy

The safety of the team members and our volunteers is the most important consideration. The FIRST LEGO League Operational Partners for Oregon use that consideration to guide all decisions when deciding to cancel or delay an event.

Oregon's FLL Operational Partners will cancel or delay an event using information from the US Weather Bureau to help us forecast if it would be safe for a majority of the teams/volunteers to travel to and from the event. If the site host closes their facility because of weather, health and emergency related reasons, the event will be canceled.

Coaches and parents must always assess their own travel route for safety and make their own decision to travel. Keep it in perspective. The safety of the kids is the most important consideration. Official information site for tournament cancellations or delays .

In addition, ORTOP and QT Directors will email to both the primary and emergency contact email addresses with notification or updates.

The third method of contact is by phone using the emergency phone number provided by the coach.

If any of this information has changed since October, please update your Qualifying Tournament Director.

Please note: If an event is canceled it is impossible to reschedule it. Site hosts have booked their facilities months in advance. There is no time to reschedule prior to the Championship. State Championship slots left open by an event cancelation will be assigned by lottery from teams affected by the cancelation. Revised 10/01/11
