Javits Update: Pit Table Assignments and Rules
March 4, 2009
This is the first of a series of updates I will be sending in the next 2 days.
A schedule in xcel to follow tomorrow.
Most info is being posted on Norms Robotics, including maps of layouts.
See below for your assignments. Lower numbers will be first up for research and tech and we go in that order. I tried to take into account your requests but generally did it in team number order to maintain what little is left of my sanity.
You must check in with Teri Bader and me at the registration desk. You are not present officially unless you do that. If there is a line and you have “stuff” and are there early, let us know.
I am attaching a form for you to fill out for each team.
Tours are still being offered on Friday, Mar. 6. Contact Ana email@example.com
Javits is a big place
Stick-on badges (10 per team) are being printed which the kids will stick on their shirts. Each badge will identify the pit #, Team # and maybe school and team name.
