Safety glasses are required to be worn at all times when in the Pit Area. Teams are required to bring their own safety glasses to the event.
Each team's pit area will consist of one 6 foot table, 1-2 chairs, and an electrical outlet. Please bring an extension cord, and a surge protector.
All team members and mentors are required to either bring a consent form (signed by parent/guardian if under 18) and/or a complete STIMS roster printout – these must be handed-in at the registration desk when you arrive.
Teams are required to conduct a self-inspection of their robot and submit the completed hardware and software inspection forms during the inspection process. The purpose of this rule/process is to move the event along in an efficient manner. Please be aware that inspections close at 10:00 AM.
