Re: General Mission Possible

On the first task, if I pull out a nail with a string and the nail falls outside the parameters of the device (80x50x50), is that a violation of the rules and would it give me a 50 point penalty?

Re: Science Word [TX State Event]

I would guess it's a bit like Picture This from C division -- where you have to guess science terms. This is how I coached Picture This (and we took 1st...

Re: Wildflowers [TX State Event]

Are you guys taking the same approach for studying as you are for Forestry? I am in both events and am studying the same way for both events. By the way, here are the event guidelines: http://outreach.science.tamu.edu/tso/2012/Guidelines/2012_Texas_Wildflowers_Event_Guidelines.pdf

Re: Compute This B

Our school simulated this event in our science class. Generally, a good idea is to try to reference ideas that your partner has connected with the term he/she is trying to guess. Also, since nobody has posted this yet, here is the link to the rules: http://outreach.science.tamu.edu/tso/2012/Guidelin...
