Judging Criteria

  • Default Judging Criteria
    "Teams will be judged on these four criteria (suggested). Judges will weigh the criteria equally. During judging, participants should try to describe what they did for each criterion in their project.
  • Technology
    • Technology: How technically impressive was the hack? Was the technical problem the team tackled difficult? Did it use a particularly clever technique or did it use many different components? Did the technology involved make you go ""Wow""?
  • Design
    Did the team put thought into the user experience? How well designed is the interface? For a website, this might be about how beautiful the CSS or graphics are. For a hardware project, it might be more about how good the human-computer interaction is.
  • Completion:
    Does the hack work? Did the team achieve everything they wanted?
  • Learning
    Did the team stretch themselves? Did they try to learn something new? What kind of projects have they worked on before?
