Re: Junkyard Challenge B

Also is there a clarification that said we had to hit the plate because at our practice competition, the proctor said if you can make it past the plate, you get the distance score but only once??

Re: Junkyard Challenge B

We got 13th at Nats with a deviating catapult. We aimed for around 20 ft or whereever the tape ended. During practice our trigger snapped in half and our distance came close to the target but we got participation points. Our tiebreaker must have saved us or something because at State the same thing ...

Re: Junkyard Challenge B

Does the trigger for Bouncer HAVE to be activated by the ball? Please answer!!!!

Re: Fossils B/C

Re: Fossils B/C

Hi, does anyone have an idea of what a Nummulites phylum is, because sources say Foraminifera, Granuloreticulosa, Protozoa, Sarcomastigophora, or Sarcodina. It really makes a difference because one of the tests I took said Foraminifera, but my notes said Sarcomastigophora. :geek: :ugeek: :geek: :uge...
