Problem 2: Strategy Sphere
Staging Area Judge will check that the team's devices are
marked “1” and “2”; count and measure the balls, and check that
they are round; and measure the width and height of the team's hoop.
The Staging Area Judge will check that there is a Bonus Ball
with a star attached or, if not, have the team demonstrate how it will
attach the star, then hand the team a set of 26 Attempt Cards.|
The competition site is a minimum of
18’ x 18’. The floor will be marked with 1”
tape to designate foul lines A, B, C and D,
the Free Throw lines and the Score Area
lines. If space permits, teams may perform
and/or place equipment outside the competition area. On the site,
there will be one judge wearing a “1” and another judge wearing
a “2,” which represents Device 1 and Device 2. Before each
launch, the team must hand an Attempt Card to the judge wearing
the number of the device that will perform the launch. If a team
does not give the judge an Attempt Card before a launch, it will
be considered a practice launch and will not be scored.
The Timekeeper will call time at the end of the 8 minutes and
the team must stop. If the team's solution is completed before
then, the team may signal the judges that it is finished.
