Here, the speed of the rocket is tested. The rocket has to travel a minimum of 90m. The teams with maximum distance/time ratio will get to qualify for the next round.
Points will be awarded according to the following relation:
Total Points = Range (in m)/time taken (sec)
This round is eliminative from which only the top teams will proceed to the next stage.
Second round : “NO RUSH – REACH THE TARGET”
This round tests the stability of rocket. Two chances will be provided for launching the rocket. There will be 3 circular regions in the arena, having P points
1. Region A (5 meter radius region): P = 50 points
2. Region B (7 meter radius region): P = 25 points
3. Region C (10 meter radius region): P = 15 points
4. Otherwise : P= 0 points
Total points = P + 10*Time taken.
In case of tie in total points, Maximum points are scored by the team which scores maximum points by hitting the region (P).
If the points scored by hitting are also equal, then the points obtained from the first round will be considered.
