Re: Making tests tips

Hello, I just finished running Amazing Mechatronics in Wisconsin (also a WI event for Div B and C this year) at the Medford Invite yesterday, and also wrote the test for the Belleville Invite. I would suggest using Tinker Circuits online and using a mix of multiple choice and free-response questions...

Re: West coast invites

Hello, I'll chime in here with Boyceville mentioned. Our date is 12/1, which I see probably isn't ideal. While we strive to provide a great competitive opportunity for both strong and new/young teams, and it is humbling to be mentioned alongside other great invites, I would be foolish to compare our...

Re: Endothermic Task

OK, seems reasonable to me. For the record I agree with you, and I like your argument about the changing resistance. I just like the idea of an FAQ on this because I see different event supervisors possibly interpreting this differently.

Re: Endothermic Task

ICs that are "resistor programmable" or that can be adjusted using an analog input in a similar fashion should be fine IMO.


But wouldn't this violate rule 3i where it says Programmable components are not allowed? Looks like FAQ time...when it opens of course.

Re: Protein Modeling at Invitationals

Hello, We ran Protein Modeling in Wisconsin at the Boyceville Invite as well as several other invites (UWRF, Belleville, Medford, and the West Regional). We found these to work very well for the on-site build: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0026WGDYW/ref=oh_aui_search_detailpage?ie=UTF8&psc=...

Re: Hovercraft B/C

Hello Everybody, First, congratulations to everybody who competed on Saturday. I was the Division B Hovercraft supervisor at Nationals and, as always, was quite impressed with everybody's devices and tests. I was equally impressed with the politeness, kindness, hard work, and positive sportsmanship ...

Re: 11th Annual Boyceville B/C Invitational

Hello,

The link was sent to coaches over the weekend. Have your coach e-mail me if they did not receive it. The tests and keys will not be available online, only to participating teams.

Thanks!

Re: Hovercraft B/C

Hello, I helped supervise Hovercraft B at Nationals last weekend with Audrey Carson from Ohio. I am not entirely comfortable sharing many raw scores that can be aligned with specific teams but I did calculate the following summary statistics on the data from the 60 competing teams at nationals and i...

Re: Hovercraft B/C

Hello, I'll share a bit more here, but you are pretty much spot on. I helped with Hovercraft yesterday and the tables we requested were warped (they were plastic banquet tables) in the middle causing cars to go down hill and then uphill and get stuck. Realizing this, during the first time block we *...

Re: Towers B/C

Hello, Just want to address some of the concerns as it was a group of parent volunteers from Boyceville and at least one other school. On the photos this was emphasized in tournament mailings and notices as a tournament rule and there was an issue early in the day with cell phone video and dishonest...

Re: National Test Discussion

One thing I've always wondered; if Boyceville HS only has a few hundred students (or so I've heard) how do you manage to fit 100+ teams in the building for the invitational? Very carefully :) Actually, last year was very tight and that is why we are shrinking a bit next year. We do have around 200 ...
