Hello Chevron Design Challenge Teams: 

Welcome to the 2013 Chevron Design Challenge!

Attached is a copy of the general information about the competition, and the general rules for dimensioning.

Also included is a copy of a design brief we used earlier as an example. You will be given the design brief for this year's problem on the morning of the competition, but this will give you an idea of what to expect.

Please pay particular attention to the process for the day and the deliverables which each team will be expected to turn in. Also pay attention to the times when items must be turned in - late turn ins are severely penalized.

Also note that there will only two or three printers available for all of the teams to share - so be sure to print early. You don't want to wait until the last minute or you may be docked points for a late turn in.

At the beginning of the day, each team will be given one flash drive which has a copy of this year's design brief along with various other tools and drawings that you will need to compete effectively.

Each team should set up a Presentation Folder on their flash drive, and at the end of the day, your work product - Powerpoint Presentation, drawings,  video if any, etc  should all be put into that Folder. It is what will be copied to the presentation computer and projector when it is time for your presentation.

We look forward to having you at this year’s Chevron Design Challenge! Good Luck!

Sincerely,

PLTW California & Chevron
