Description: Each student team will design and build, using 80/20 t-slotted aluminum extrusion from the same basic instructions and parts, provided in a kit.

The variety of materials included in the kit will allow individural decisions by each team regarding, but not limited to: Overall size, shape and functionality.

Format: All teams will gather in the event area where they will give you a workspace, materials, and the challenge details. Then the time will start, and you'll plan, build, and test your ideas. The top 6 teams from the first rounds will move on to the finals.
