Zip-A-Dee-Dah: Pencils Provided + Measuring

Q: Will a pencil be provided for the written portion of the event?  And, if so, will that pencil be collected prior to the build portion of the event? I have a student that is interested in using a pencil as a makeshift measuring device.

A: Yes, we provide a pencil and calculator for the written portion. Those are collected when we gather the test responses. A glue stick may be a better item to use as a measuring tool.
