No food or drinks will be sold by the school. However, there are some local eateries: Starbucks, Subway, B-Man’s, Trader Joe’s.

Please use your own hotspots for internet connectivity. There are limited power outlets in the Pit area. Bring power strips if you need to charge your units.

Carver teachers who have volunteered their classrooms have Parent-Teacher Conferences when they return on Tuesday. Given the physical layout of the classrooms, we cannot move the classroom furniture around to have more than just the judges and team members in the judging rooms. We, therefore, cannot fit parents and coaches in the judging rooms. You may watch quietly outside by following these rules: 

1) Silence is golden. Please do not tap on the windows. 
2) Do not signal to the team members presenting.
