ROADS News for Crews, Feb. 22 — Checkpoint Challenges final extension!

G’day, ROADS crews!

Thank you all for your patience and your kind emails as our office moved forward after Dr. Winglee’s death. Our ROADS this year may have gotten off to a bumpy start, but we know that Robert would have been so pleased to see all of you continuing on with meeting your Mission Objectives.

We are holding open our Checkpoint Challenge submissions portals for just a few more days to make sure all teams have had a chance to upload their materials.  You can find links to each Checkpoint Challenge’s page here:

For Checkpoint Challenge numbers 1 and 2, remember that you’re creating a video where you’ll show your experimentation and discuss your team’s processes and findings.  That’s it!  No supplemental material needed.

For Checkpoint Challenge #3, you’ll be creating an image of your team’s mission patch and providing a short, written explanation of the patch’s design.  You can combine these into one single document, or you can upload them as two separate pieces — one an image of the patch and one a written document of your patch’s explanation.

Deadline — Thursday, February 25, 2021
We will keep the submissions portals open through Thursday night, but on Friday we’ll collate submissions for all the checkpoints and send them off to our judges for scoring.
