可多了！將海報放到 V 形展板上；安裝、測試和修理你們的海平面量度裝置、佈置展覽區、試試如何介紹作品等等。
Repair our device?
Since your devices may be slightly damaged during transportation or preliminary judging, please bring tools and materials to make necessary repair to your device.
Are power adaptors or extensions available on site?
There are only one to two mains sockets for each group. Please bring your own power adaptors or extensions in case they are needed.
I cannot find high density polystyrene boards for backing the posters. What can I do?
You can use any light flat material, such as corrugated cardboard or hard paper board, as backing material.
Which language should we use to present the project to visitors?
There is no restriction. It's fine to choose the language both you and the visitor understand.
Is it fine to have English posters and present in Chinese?
Is there a duration limit in presenting the project to visitors?
There is no duration limit.
Yet, since there are many exhibits in the hall,
visitors usually do not have time to listen to lengthy explanations and demonstrations.
A few minutes would be good enough.
We have prepared materials only for the judges. How can we identify them?
Judges are introduced in the opening ceremony and can be identified by the badges they wear.
There is no need to prepare materials only to the judges as they are just visitors with some professional knowledge on the topic your project is on.
Since the exhibition is open to the public, anyone from children to professionals may come and ask you questions judges may ask.
Facing the public is facing the judges.
When will the judges come?
All judges will come to the opening ceremony and start visiting the exhibits before the exhibition is open to public.
They may revisit the exhibits to see ask further questions and see how the teams present the project to public and the media.
The time schedule makes lunch arrangements difficult.
We want to make sure that everybody stand by all the time when the judges come.
The idea of the exhibition is for knowledge exchange between teams, as well as the organizers and the public.
Judging is not based on the number of students in a team that are present when they visit.
To keep the exhibition area manned,
members of a team can go to have lunch in groups.
The award presentation ceremony is not open for public but my friends and family want to stay. Can they?
The ceremony is not open to public because all participants will be in the front of the hall and cannot attend to their projects.
Trusting that those who stay won't be vandalizing your project,
your friends and family can stay for the ceremony by standing at the back of the seating area.
