Re: Shock Value B/Circuit Lab C

I would suggest bringing a volt meter of your own to anyone going to competition. First of all, you will probably be more familiar with it, and also you wont run the risk of loosing the event due to their volt meter. (from personal experience.)

Re: Rotor Egg Drop B

Fiber glass as the "Supports" then wrap Mylar around it, secured with spray-on glue. Connect two rotors (Pick your pitch) with string and super glue. Put a rod through those two, and on the bottom of that rod (I used brass) Put another pair of two. Then hang two strings and tie them to either side o...

Re: Rotor Egg Drop B

Hey, what are some good times for Rotor Egg? Our rig got 2.14 seconds. We made blades out of Carbon Fiber and Mylar. We hung the top of a cup from a string, and put the provided cup inside of it. We attached the wings we made with string and super glue, and we had a piece of brass tubing that went b...

Re: Indiana 2013

Sorry I don't remember them all, but Tri-north won (Go Trojans!) and Jackson Creek got 3rd.

Re: Indiana 2013

Yes I put 9v for that answer, and I believe I got one right (That one). The person above me probably got 2 right (He's the other person on my team) and the person on first probably completed it before my peer (tie breaker was time). I can almost guarantee that everyone else failed as there was the s...

Re: Indiana 2013

I will actually type what happened, instead of spamming. I show up to the event about 10 minutes early, and sit down at a chair. After the other few teams come in and sit down, the coordinator told us to come to the center and told us how to do the test. (Like answer questions/measure the circuit). ...

Re: Indiana 2013

Oh no the questions sort of had to do with the rules. I'm just saying Shock Value included Magnets, and electrical devices (EG light bulbs and motors). He gave us a series circuit and asked us to find the resistance of R1, and R2, gave us a 9 volt battery and asked us how many volts were coming out ...

Re: Indiana 2013

Went to Butler today for Regionals. I got an unbelievable test with absolutely nothing form the event rules in Shock Value. They gave us a Multi-Meter that read about .27 off, and I didn't realize it before I left. (Long story) The test was about 6 questions long.... Its a real slap in the face when...
