Answer: Respective competition requires its own extra parts to be purchased. Please refer to the respective competition challenge booklets. 

 

  • Do we need to have a coach? 

Answer: Yes, it is stated in all the challenge booklets that an adult (over the age of 20) has to be registered as a coach for each team. 

 

  • If my school only has SPIKE Prime, and I want to send my students for the WeDo competition, am I allowed to loan WeDo sets from Duck Learning? 

Answer: Yes, please send a request to enquiries@nrc.sg. Or you can directly contact the Duck Learning Education Executives if you have their number. 

 

  • Can we change the team members after we have registered a team? 

Answer: Yes, but must be done by 6th of August 2021. Team members can be changed before the submission for the qualifiers, but it is on a case to case basis. An email must be sent to enquiries@nrc.sg to request for this change. It is subject to approval by the NRC Organizing Committee.
