one of my student has posed this question:

I have a question regarding the size limit of the robot. In the rules it states that the robot must fit in a 12" X 12" X 12" cube with all parts un-restrained. I heard from other sources that in the past at state meets that the way the judges check this is to place a 12" X 12" X 12" box over the robot and if it fits it's legit. My predicament is my bot is approximately 1/4th an inch too long, but it still fits in a box of the specified dimensions if placed diagonally in the cube. Is this still considered legal or must the dimensions be specifically measured according to the length width and height of the robots chassie?

No; the size of the robot is measured inside a cube, regardless of robot orientation. As long as it would fit in a theoretical 12"x12"x12" box - unrestrained and without supports - it is good.
