My team is using the standard 130 page notebook and yesterday day we reached page 129. Our state competition is in 3 weeks, and we are wondering if it is worth starting a second notebook. We have won a design award this season so I know it is competitive.
The argument for is that we should just keep moving along. We don’t want to just stop, and it might make us loose out on an award if our last entry was 2 weeks ago. We also might be attending super regionals and we don’t want to have a dead space of a few weeks.
The argument against is that it might look like we are trying to show off as no other team (that I know of) has turned in 2 books. If we have a new notebook with only 15 pages it might look like we are just trying to show off. The end would also be less interesting as we are no longer doing decision matrix and most of our time is spent coding/driving.
What did you think that we should do? We are hoping to have some responses from people who have judged in the past.
- Start a second notebook
- Don’t bother starting another
