Re: Strongest Invitationals?

I'm just going to list them in tiers, since sometimes it's really hard to distinguish. Div C: 1. MIT (by a lot) 2. Wright State (they wouldn't have been here last year, MIT stole their thunder), Golden Gate 3. Mira Loma, Westlake, Mentor, Troy, Cornell 4. UPenn, Solon, Princeton, Rice (though the T...

Re: IMPORTANT question on what to bring

You aren't allowed any notes.
Just out of curiosity, what notes would you bring?
I was thinking about bringing a copy of the rubric plus a list of tips for experimental design.
I think that would make the event useless, seeing as whoever wins is essentially whoever knows the rubric the best.

Re: Experimental Design B/C

Can anyone tell me what I'm supposed to do for "different ways to approach hypothesis" in the "applications" section? The scioly page gives an example of testing a parachute with varying masses I believe, and said that using a computer simulation is an example of approaching the hypothesis from a d...

Re: Optics B/C

Along with the question posted above, I was wondering if there were any online simulations that anyone has used in order to practice the laser shoot, or if anyone is interested in creating one?

Re: 2016 Swap Meet

What have people traded to get cheese hats in the past? This is my first year going to Nationals and I want to show the rest of my team up... :twisted: I remembering reading a story about someone who got a cheese hat for free. Generally it takes a lot; either one or two good items, generally hats (...

Re: National Test Discussion

I guess I might as well review the tests: Wind Power(11th): The test was relatively difficult. Relatively. The other tests I took were very easy, so there isn't much of a comparison. It went over the rules fairly well, but then again the rules are pretty vague, so idk. On the total power from our de...

Re: National Test Discussion

I'm just waiting for chalker to lie down a huge plot twist: he's been making up all of these numbers the entire time. (C'mon, if that were true it would be pretty funny...or at least if he pretended for it to be true). It would be pretty funny, and the answers do suggest it is possible, but I feel ...

Re: National Test Discussion

Okay, that got me curious about the difference between 25th and 10th in hydro. Oh and the difference between 12th and 6th in It's about Time if you could please. Four points for a 15 place difference makes me so happy considering I didn't fail as bad as I thought I did. 9 and 2 points would have go...

Re: National Test Discussion

Chalker, if it's not too difficult, could you find how close 11th in wind power was to medalling? If not, I'm okay with the mean max,min, etc. Thanks! As a side note, I'm very curious(and I'm sure at least some others are as well) as to how close the Japanese team was to top 6? 20th in forensics is ...
