The competition[edit]

Format[edit]

The competition consists of the individual round, team round, and team challenges including activity round, suss the sequence (also known as the codebreaker), and the dragon round. Different years may see different appendages and different schedules. The individual round is a written test in which a contestant has to answer a series of questions presented as a slide presentation, with two minutes between slides. The team round has teams of 3 answering questions, then handing the answers to a runner, who runs along guided lines to a grader. Multiple attempts at a question are allowed. The team challenges are various events which do not count toward the final score but are intended to challenge the participants by testing ability and teamwork.
