Each team is assigned a work station at the rear of the room. Work stations have electricity, however you may benefit from bringing a power strip. When your team is ready to do a run, you will line up behind the screen and wait to be called out to the competition floor. Your team will be assigned to compete in one of the white arenas.
The picture above is a standard arena floor. Autonomous robots navigate the arenas in search of the candle to extinguish. The robot who completes it in the fastest time is declared the winner.
The competition venue is set up to allow spectators to have an up-close experience. Bleacher seating is available, although many fans choose to stand near their favorite teams and cheer them on. Admission for spectators is always free.
