Journal and scoring questions...

I am curious if the journal is a required portion at competitions. Also, in the skills challenge, is the balanced bridge still 25 points? That’s what I’m gathering, but wanted to verify. Thanks!

The journal is not required to compete, but it is required for the Excellence award and the design award. Not having a journal won’t keep the kids from playing on the field, but it does limit their opportunities.

Yes, a balanced bridge with the robot on it is worth 25 points in the skills challenges.

Thank you!
