This is bad.

Re: Rocks & Minerals B/C

There's a lot of cool looking minerals encrusted on this rock. I don't know what the white stuff is from the picture alone...Where did you find it? It doesn't matter where I got it from, because at regionals, my teammate found a stash of rocks & minerals a school obviously dumped onto the dirt (who...

Re: Rocks & Minerals B/C

This one's a tough one. I found this mineral on a trail two weeks ago, and I still don't know what it is. I am leaning towards malachite, but what does anybody else think it is? I will answer questions about its property. http://imageshack.us/a/img849/2443/1070810.jpg http://imageshack.us/a/img580/6...

Re: Rotor Egg Drop B

If it is true, then it is really good. But, I have Never seen a team that had a time of 6.1. It's sort of unreal.
It's against the rules, because it has to fit in the cube in flight position. Mine was 70cm x 70cm, and it only fit in the box if I tilted it, while bending the wings.

Re: Rotor Egg Drop B

Today is the day I will test my Rotor-Egg Drop! I have a real egg now, which is probably heavier than the weight I was using before (50 g.). Let's see if it breaks or not. The egg weighed 60 grams, which is 10 grams more than the weight I used before. It dropped in 5.5 seconds, and in 3 trials, the...

Re: Write It Do It B/C

At my location, it was basically the picture available in Wiki ->Test. Not EXACTLY but just some version of it. It was basically all legos with paper clips and beads within it. What it looked like is, there was a rectangle and another rectangle on top of it (on the edges). It was easy but I messed ...

Re: Write It Do It B/C

I usually practice with legos, rulers, strings, and weird things. My partner once wrote 30 steps for me to do. I'd say the average one I have to do is 20ish steps. At invitationals, all that was on my desk was a styrofoam cup, 2 pipe cleaners, and 4 beads. With only 7 steps, It was easier than the o...

Re: Rotor Egg Drop B

I made a big rotor-egg drop, and dropped down our schools' stair case. I think it was 17 feet, and I used a 57 g. weight (that's like the average weight of an egg) and it fell in 6.1 seconds. Is this a good time? Are you sure that is the right time at the stated height? It seems too good to be true...
