So I was hoping for more clarification but the IQ Judging video from the EP summit is not up… And I have some questions about STEM!
First, all of the official documentation is that the STEM project is optional. A little birdy told me that if an event had 24 teams then we would be expected to have STEM.
Does the judging have to be done at the competition, or can some judges do it the night before?
For excellence, it falls under “other awards.” That is usually a minor consideration. How much impact does the RECF want STEM to have on Excellence?
