Question: Is it Interference for the Team Manager to write each element on a piece of paper and ask the team to group the elements so that it now has a bubble diagram that organizes the elements, copy them and give the copies to each team member? AA Having the team break apart the Challenge and then giving them copies is a good technique for evaluating what the Challenge requires. BB. The Team Manager may only read the Challenge to the team but cannot have them dissect it. CC. The Team Manager may have the team break the Challenge into a bubble diagram but may not record anything.

23 | © 2011 Destination ImagiNation, Inc. Test Yourself A team observed another team dressed up in chicken costumes that did very well. The next year the team decided to dress up as chickens. Question: Is it Interference to observe successful Presentations from a previous year and copy facets of it in the next? YesNo A team observed another team dressed up in chicken costumes that did very well. The next year the team decided to dress up as chickens. Question: Is it Interference to observe successful Presentations from a previous year and copy facets of it in the next? YesNo

24 Answer No Good Thinking The team should not consciously use the idea from another team as “...an idea offered by someone not on the team...” Although they are inspired by the other team’s solution they need to make and adjust and use things in their own way.

25 Answer Yes It Depends! If the team copies what the other team did and does not make any changes to make it their own solution then this might be Interference. Remember that the challenge is different so we would hope they would not come up with the same solution as a team did in a previous year.

26 Test Yourself | © 2011 Destination ImagiNation, Inc. Your team watches a YOUTUBE video of another team doing your Challenge in another state. They really like a particular element in the other team’s solution. Can your team use it? YesNo Your team watches a YOUTUBE video of another team doing your Challenge in another state. They really like a particular element in the other team’s solution. Can your team use it? YesNo

27 Answer No Excellent! Always think of the Interference Triangle. Since someone other than a team member has given them an idea – it enters the “Solution” part of the Triangle? In this case, another team gave them the idea thus you are right and this would be Interference. | © 2011 Destination ImagiNation, Inc. Next

28 Answer Yes Oops! To observe successful Presentations of your Team Challenge and copy facets of what another team did is the same as having that team give your team an idea. The Rules of the Road says “Every idea for every part of your unique solution must come from your team members and team members only. If an idea is offered by someone not on the team, your team may not use that idea, even if you might have thought of it yourselves later on.” This would be Interference.

40 Answer Yes Oops! There is nothing in the Rules of the Road that prohibits teams from purchasing their costumes.

46 Answer While the rules of Interference state that if your team does not know the skills that are needed to build an idea, they must learn the skills or find another way to do the project. Since every idea for every part of the solution must come from team members only the Team Manager would have to present several options for the team to consider in order to make their decision.

49 Answer A & C While you are providing multiple resources for the team, you are still deciding what they need. The team needs to decide this.

Question: Is it Interference for a non- team member to help cut the board if it is just for safety purposes? YesNo

58 Answer Yes Super! If the team cannot do this safely with out non-team member help then the team must then figure out another way to solve that part of the Challenge or learn how to do it safely (on a sample) or find another way to cut the wood. | © 2011 Destination ImagiNation, Inc. Next

59 Answer No Oops! Even though you were just holding the board to provide safety, no one but team members may work on, build, or create any part of the team’s solution. They need to find a team member or another way to hold the board. It is not Interference for a Team Manager or parent to point out something to the team that the Team Manager or parent considers unsafe. It s not Interference to prevent the team from engaging in any unsafe behavior. The team must then figure out what it needs to do to be sure its solution is safe.

110 Answer A OOPS! The Rules of the Road state that teams should make sure your Presentation materials will fit through the opening of a standard doorway, approximately 30in x 76in. The Tournament Director does not have to move the site in order to accommodate your team’s props.

111 Answer B OOPS! Team Managers, parents, teachers and others are not responsible for the care of team props, scenery or costumes either before or on the day of the Tournament.

114 Answer Yes OOPS! Only members of your team may assemble, prepare or repair props, direct your Presentation, decide how to stage your Presentation, and decide on all other aspects of your Challenge solution. If anyone else helps, it is Interference. Remind your parents and team supporters that you need to work on your props, costumes, directing and staging yourselves! Therefore, since the parent did not tell the team what to do and instead asked they what they thought they should do it is not Interference. It is wise to encourage the parents to only give words of encouragement to the team rather than pointing out possible difficulties.
