Teachers are still working on the format, but basically, judges will talk to 4-5 students about their projects over the course of about two hours. They will spend about 15 minutes per project- 10 minutes talking to students about their projects (letting students explain their work) and asking them questions, and another five filling out the score card. Judges will be provided with a google form that they will use to score projects and leave comments. Judges will travel in pairs interviewing students and they will have a few minutes to finish the score form before moving on to the next interview.
