Additional Rules for The Effective Detective
Teams will be allowed to choose to be scored either for the problem requirement to store their solution in containers (B13) OR selecting one item in the solution and use it up to three different ways. The team must list their choice on the Team List Form. (April 3, 2020 )
If selecting one item instead of containers:
The item and the number of ways it will be used must be explained before time begins in your video. Scoring would be as follows:
Using one item in multiple ways – 0, 10, or 20 points.
Item is used one way= 0 points.
Item is used two different ways= 10 points.
Item is used three different ways= 20 points.
