Good point.

tbd=to be decided

"Agnostic" is normally used in a religious context, meaning non-religious. But in this case, it means that any solution meeting the requirements is good (they're not trying to force us to choose between a few specific types of vehicle to build).

I believe that it was mentioned in the first webinar, that there are participants from more than 70 countries in the GoFly Prize. So for many people, English will not be their first language. I would then suggest following:
As American English is not always very easy to understand, make an effort for clear pronunciation.
Avoid terms which might not be commonly understood. E.g. during the first webinar, "tbd" was used a few times.
Avoid difficult terminology. E.g. an expression used in the first webinar was "solution agnostic".

The Master Lectures and Webinars are an impressive initiative. So lets make the most of it.
