Problem 1: Envirover
the Staging Area, the Staging Area Judge
will ask the team to place its Envirover within
the taped D.O.T. Garage area then examine the
team's Product Prototype. The judge will check
its size, planned operation, the floor contact
points for potential floor damage, and safety hazards.|
The competition site is a minimum of 20' x 22' with a taped 4'
x 6' D.O.T. Garage, 3' x 3' Trash Collection Site, and 3' x 3' Factory.
The Envirover will leave the D.O.T Garage and attempt three round
trip deliveries from the Trash Collection Site to the Factory. It will
pick up trash items while in the Trash Collection Site and deliver
them to the Factory. Before time ends, the Envirover will travel
back to the D.O.T. Garage. The team will use the Trash delivered to
the Factory to assemble five Final Product Samples based on its
Product Idea and Product Prototype. The team will use the Prototype
in a humorous “Sales Pitch” to sell the Final Product. The
Timekeeper will call time at the end of 8 minutes and the team must
stop. If the team finishes before then, it may signal the judges.
