 +=====Hands-On Verbal=====
 +Hands-on verbal (or combination) [[spontaneous]] problems require teams to create a [[Hands-On Spontaneous|tangible solution]] and include some type of [[Verbal Spontaneous|verbal component]],​ for example, creating a story about the solution. Teams are scored for both the tangible solution and the verbal presentation.
 +=====Hands-On Verbal Problem Tips=====
 +  * Understand the unique components of each stage of the problem. Is only part 2 scored? How can time in part 1 be used to maximize score in part 2?
 +  * If creating objects to give responses to, create objects open to wide interpretation in order to allow for more responses (a picture of a house and a car is more restrictive than a stick figure with 6 arms).
 +  * Plan story responses to have a clear beginning, middle and end - keeping in mind the time allowed to solve the problem. Develop a story including a problem and resolution. A story should always have some sort of direction.
 +  * Add drama to story problem responses by being animated or using an accent in your responses.
 +=====Types of Hands-On Verbal Problem=====
