### Re: Physical Science Lab

Will the fan used at Nationals be at least 30 cm in diameter? I know it's a little late to be asking this, but I'm just wondering.

Our current stats:

1660 mv high
1450 mv low

I know it's hard to compare, but we're using a large (non-boxy) fan.

I see my ignorance.

I've been getting 900 millivolts.

God I wish I had a Xbox. If anyone is going to get CODWW, you may know this, but get it for the Xbox... No offense to the Wii people, but the graphics are terrible, and there's no Nacht der Untoten. I played it on the Xbox at my friend's house...I shot people, and they basically just exploded! I mea...

My coach said something about having a tv antenna to guide your scrambler or something, I didn't really ask, so can anyone tell me what that's about?

If the enemy is in range, so are you. You are not Superman; marines and fighter pilots take note. The onl...

What are you using for wheels? I personally use CD's with rubber bands around the edge. I used those for my back wheels, had to glue them on with epoxy. for my front wheels I used a speaker wire spool...I guess some people just have leftover speaker wire spools in their house. Rubber bands don't re...
