Re: Boomilever B/C

Wdym yikes? This effectively neutralizes all super wide boomis (which weren't very effective ngl) and paves the way for a chimney boomi meta to be rampant this year. (This years rules make boomi way easier ngl) Any "good" chimney boomi would be well within 8cm gap the vertical contact lines are giv...

Re: Boomilever B/C

I'd suggest you match the glue with the specific joint use... We use both Gorilla Glue (the Polyurethane type that foams) as well as the medium viscosity Jet Super Glue (cyanoacrylate). Using a foaming glue may not be a good choice for applying gussets, as it will just push the gusset away as it fo...

Re: PICTURES, SCORES, VIDEOS!!

It was definitely slower. Although, I like it a lot more when it’s like this. I’m not sure what you mean by bendier though. Meant to say the testing wall bends forward a little during loading. Didnt notice it during testing but the video they sent me shows it pretty clearly I noticed that too. I kn...

Re: PICTURES, SCORES, VIDEOS!!

Medalling efficiency for div. C was 1942. To me it seemed like the testing device at nationals was on the slower and bendier side so it would make sense for the scores to be a bit lower. either way everyone shouldve been affected pretty much equally. It was definitely slower. Although, I like it a ...

Re: Scores Discussion

Anyone know what the top scores at nats were?
First place was 1,561. All tasks, no touches. They will probably end up making a video showing the device but I cannot promise when that will be posted. I have a video of the Nationals run but it is so far away that it is not very helpful.

Re: State Boomilever scores

Those seem strangely low, considering we've had people upwards of 2000 for a while now. Agreed. I think there is a handful of teams that have scored over 2000 but there are also factors at work when approaching full load that cannot be accounted for at competition. We recently just filmed the actua...

Re: PICTURES, SCORES, VIDEOS!!


Winner was 2500 score I heard. Not confirmed though
Div B or C?
Can confirm.
1st: 5.9 g with full
2nd: 6.22 g with full (from above)
3rd: 6.59 g with full (me!)

Did these three use similar designs? That's a pretty tight grouping.

Re: Thermodynamics B/C Build

I feel that would be so difficult to keep consistent due to the difficulty of making sure there actually is a vacuum created within the device walls. Did they keep the vacuum bag on it during testing?? But, if it works, great! I didn't see it in action, but it was a rigid container rather than a ba...

Re: Thermodynamics B/C Build

apparently sticking the box into a vacuum bag, sucking the living air out of it, and then using it actually improves the ability to insulate. I saw a div B team with a box that had an air pump attached so I think they were trying to create a vacuum. Not sure how well it worked though. I feel that w...

Re: Science Olympiad at MIT Invitational 2019

Does anyone know how much time they got per station on herpetology?

It was 2 minutes per station based on the best they could remember (although there was some argument if it was 2 or 2 1/2 per station).
