Re: Inclined Planes

The rules state that the object must be continuously pushed or pulled up the inclined plane, without rolling. Does anyone have any suggestions or methods on how we push or pull our object up the inclined plane? I'd put a rail on there - just a plane with little lips on the sides (Front view: |____|...

Re: Instructions

On the instructions for Mission Possible it states, "An object must be continuously pushed or pulled without rolling along a stationary Inclined Plane," what does this mean? To explicate Unome's directions, you're gonna want either a flat - based object (cube/prism) or a ball that is pull...

Re: Inclined Plane

Hi Everyone, Does anyone have any good methods on getting an object up an inclined plane that goes with the rules? I had a pulley pull an object up an inclined plane by having a hole in the object attach to the pulley string, and that object pushing another object up the inclined plane, but if that...

Re: Screws

I'm wondering how people are trying to make screws. Last year my school just tape a bunch of parts together Well, other than BUYING screws, you could be a bit more creative, and do something that makes sense. Last year, my team attempted to harness centripetal force and have a long threaded bolt st...

Well, as a very basic and easy-to-navigate page, go here: http://www.srh.noaa.gov/srh/jetstream/matrix.html. This has good info, and not ALL of it is usable, but it is a good start. Other than that, check out Quizlet for good vocab practice. Hope this helps! :D

Re: Flag Rule Question

During the time the flag is being raised, can the flag go out of the dimensions of the device beside the top? Ex. The flag is on the right edge of the device and it rotates up counter-clockwise. Can any part of the flag go past the right edge of the device? Based on my reading of 6.c (the boundary ...

Re: Meteorology B

So guys, I was just wondering what you think may be the biggest challenge this year in terms of topics. My partner and I really want to go pretty in-depth about observation (Doppler, etc.) but I was just wonder what was on your 'radar.' :o :lol: :o :lol: :o

Re: Instructions

Also - at the risk of coming across as condescending - make sure whatever thing you use is being pushed or pulled UP the inclined plane! The "raised vertically at least 10cm" makes this more clear than last year's rules (and neatly eliminates the possibility of using a nearly-flat "i...

My corn hat story: I struck early, no one was sure of values yet. I went to Nebraska, laid out my stuff, and was turned down. But did that stop me? No!

Re: 2016 Swap Meet

Not sure. Does anyone know what would annoy the middle schoolers from MA the most? They were incredibly rude to me last year. Hand out a bunch of Yankees memorabilia and wear as much Yankees branded clothing as possible, that's guaranteed to annoy anyone from Massachusetts. Or just ask them for a p...
