Tryout Event Parameters


All building events will be accompanied by questions regarding the specific event rules. You should be prepared to answer questions concerning the building process, design, competition technique, etc. Please, do not spend more than $25 to build a device as price is not considered during evaluation. Devices will be evaluated by design, effort, thoroughness, and quality of workmanship. Blueprints must be submitted where requested and should be as detailed as possible. Additionally, list the ideal materials used, price, and the accessibility to those materials. 


The specific events that will be test in tryouts for the 2017-2018 F-M SO team will be announced later during the formal informational meeting 9th period on September 19, 2017.
