Competition format this year:
In Rounds 1-10, each team submits their answer using an electronic clicker system, concealing their answers to all except the computer. In the Final Round, the top two teams will go head-to-head to compete for 1st and 2nd place. These two teams will be invited up on stage and the 1st placed team will go first. They will be asked an open-ended question and have 30 seconds to answer. A correct answer wins them a point. An incorrect answer sends the question to the 2nd place team, who will have 15 seconds to answer, for a chance to "steal" the point. Then the 2nd place team will get the next question. The round will continue like this until one team gets to 5 points.
