If the hosts had presented more about what the "8404" team did in high school, they could have planted more STEM seeds in the minds of the attendees (parents and children). It was great that the work done by each team was recognized and that each team got to describe what they were thinking during their design and implementation.

It was unfair to those attendees who arrived on time to make them wait fifteen minutes for others to arrive. It's better to reward good habits.
