The contest will take place in two phases. In phase one, each team will have 3 chances to compete on the course. Their score will be based on the inverse of the time needed to extinguish the flame using only 100mL of water; the best time from the 3 runs will be kept.

In the second phase of the contest all of the teams will compete simultaneously. When the start command is given each team’s robot will enter the field of play and attempt to find and extinguish the flame.
