Re: MagLev Vehicle B/C

I was just assigned to this event and I have no idea about the actual construction of the car. I know most of the electricity and magnetism behind the event, but the construction is ticking me off. Anybody have any suggestions? Where should I start?

Re: Optics B/C

By a lot. Many of the teams weren't even remotely close to the target! I'm assuming the test was the determining factor.

Re: Optics B/C

My partner and I have been practicing for the laser shoot, and need some tips. Anyone care to describe how they're using the tools to get the best distance away from the target?
