Re: Road Scholar B

Road Scholar was amazingly simple. However, it was also amazing how many people couldn't read a map. For example, my team placed 2nd in Road Scholar. While doing so, we lost our reference materials, our protractor, ruler, USGS map symbol sheet, started late, and skipped half of the test because my p...

Re: Science Crime Busters B

This is probably going to be one of the latest posts before a competition. PLEASE try to answer quickly, as the SUNY-Ulster NY States is tomorrow. What do you put on a reference sheet? I have powders, liquids, metals, plastics, fingerprints, blood projection, spatters, hairs, fibres. Is there anythi...

Re: MagLev Vehicle B/C

Does anyone have any idea on what to use to create a mock sled for the MagLev? I tried foam, but it isn't standing up too well, especially under over 150g weights.
It's the week before the competition... Look forward to seeing all of you at SUNY!

Re: Battery Buggy B

Thanks. I've checked on it, and came up with all of the possible ways to turn... -axle rod on a slant - wheels of each side have differing diameters - wheels of each side have different motors with different RPM. - Axles are not parallel - Tilt the axis I would like to try the bolded one, with an ad...

Re: Battery Buggy B

any ideas on how to make the thing turn around the bucket? the buggy we had didnt turn in the regionals and we got 3rd, hoping it will work in states.
do you recommend using CDs as wheels? It's a plausible idea, and it curves a bit. it's not too stable, though.

Re: Battery Buggy B

Hey, I'm competing for Battery Buggy B. Out of question, would it be safer to keep the buggy's width smaller or make its width larger? If it's smaller, it would easily leave the line it is on, which wouldn't be good. However, it would probably have a less chance of falling apart. If it's larger, it'...
