For those 62 Teams that have qualified to advance to your respective League Tournaments we look forward to seeing your team compete in the ongoing FIRST Tech Challenge Game ULTIMATE GOALsm . What we do ask is that each advancing team conform with us that you do plan on participating in the League Tournaments by this Wednesday, April 31st so that we may assure that we have the appropriate number of Judge Volunteers, resources and scheduling time to remotely support these events. Please see http://www.ftcpenn.org/ftc-events/2020-2021-season for event details.

For All Advancing Teams:  please make all effort to attend the following very important session this Wednesday. The session will be recorded but we prefer and highly suggest that someone from the team attend live so that we may answer any questions.

  • REMOTE JUDGING SESSION #3 – “Remote Judging via the Remote Scoring System” Wednesday March 31st at 7:30PM. This is a technical session on the logistics and scheduling and how the process will work within the Scoring System.

This session will walk you through the elements of the Scoring System involving the scheduling of teams for interviews as well as the associated conferencing tool that will be used for your teams to participate.

Preliminary Plans for both Teams and Volunteers: There will be two sets of judging interviews. The first is the presentation Judging Interview for each of the Tournaments scheduled for Saturday morning between 8:00 AM and 10:00 AM. The second interview is the “Pit” or follow-up interview, to be held the same Saturday afternoon between 1:00 PM and 3:30PM.

Interview schedules will be published at least one week in advance for each Tournament now that we have determination of the teams that will be eligible AND again, have confirmed their participation.

Interview times will be listed in the scoring system along with links to the web conferencing session for each interview.
