Re: Microcontrollers

There's an example on Adafruit . It's a little complicated if it is your very first time using an arduino, so you might consider starting from lesson 1 and working your way up to the motor. There's also plenty of tutorials for running a motor on a pi as well, however they are a bit more complicated ...

Re: Microcontrollers

The big difference between a raspberry pi and (most) arduino is that the pi has an operating system on it, but the arduino is just running bare machine code. The OS is great for running separate programs at the same time, which makes it good at multitasking. However, this comes at the expense of con...

Re: Season 2015 - Site Suggestions

The Question Marathons could be significantly improved with a bit of extra programming. If a post was tagged as a question or answer, one could automatically compile a list of all questions, rather than making a person search through an entire thread of mixed questions and answers. Furthermore, when...

Re: Season 2013 - Site suggestions

How about removing the friend/foe html since the system isn't used and confuses people.

Re: Does competition get unhealthy?

I don't think competition is unhealthy. Personally, I consider myself a very competitive person, and I don't think I am a particularly unhealthy person. Competition is one of the most effective ways to drive people to improve. I do not view Science Olympiad or any other competition as perpetuating t...

Re: New Theme

I think that this theme is in general an improvement and I would like to make the proposal to make it permanent. However, there is one particularly egregious error that simply must be fixed. It seems that there is a line drawn for the orbit of each planet, however I can't help but notice that Pluto ...

Re: Keep the Heat B/Thermodynamics C

You are not allowed to put it directly on the beaker. It must be at least 2.5 cm away from it. If you saw that, then that team was breaking regulations. That being said, how do you not know the rules yet? Do I need to go over the rules again with you guys before Regs? Whoa now. The top surface of t...

Re: Scioly Fantasy Football 2011

I blame the replacement officials. I lost the first three games of the year when the replacement officials were still officiating. As soon as the real officials came back, I won like, 5 consecutive games, and... I don't know what happened after that...

I have killed Paradox21.
Really? You thought that wouldn't be a terrible idea?
