Initial selection of teams and our judges will be grading theories on four criteria:

•    Force of Science - How much “scientific” information was brought forward (graphs, real citations, “Research” etc.)

•    Artistry - How unexpected and clever the idea and presentation are, and how well the presentation is delivered.

•    Parsimony - The simplest theory that explains the most data

•    Strength of Defence - How well the theory is defended in front of the judges.
