I was wondering if there were any additional details about how the interview process for Design Award judging at Worlds will be run this year. I noticed in Appendix D that there will be no sit-down interview, and instead that interviews will occur at the pits. During these interviews, will teams be constrained by time or other factors? Or will the interview continue for as long as the team and judges are engaged?
Also, our team has already gone through the Design Award Rubric, but are there any additional factors that judges will be looking for/prefer? I understand that it might be difficult or impossible to issue an answer to such a general question; our team simply wants to ensure we do not miss the target due to a minor technicality or slight tweak.
Finally, will there be multiple rounds of judging? At some events our team has attended, judges would offer a preliminary interview to the bulk of teams, and then would return for a more detailed session with their top candidates for an award, and so we were wondering if Worlds will implement a similar setup.
