Re: Mousetrap Vehicle C

Sorry for asking another question but is the Vehicle Target Point for regionals 1-2 meters backwards from the Cup Target point or 1-2 meters forwards from the Starting Point? The rules are not very specific and I am confused. Thanks!

Re: Mousetrap Vehicle C

So I was put on this event last minute and my regional is this saturday. It's pretty much finished and doing everything correctly but I wanted to know if using the bottom of a fiberglass fishing rod is legal for my arm (it is 12 inches long). It does not bend/add potentional energy or anything but ...

Re: Anime

I don’t watch much anime but I love manga. I’m currently in love with the series Dr. Stone because it is about science! Most of the science is pretty accurate which is pretty cool. (If anyone else likes manga my other favorites are Hinamatsuri, Houseki no Kuni, Black Butler, and Wotakoi) I watch the...

Undesirable situation for regionals

So my middle school had a fantastic Science Olympiad team that I loved to death and I did pretty well at regional and state. I joined high school this year and just thought that there wasn’t going to be a team so I went on with my life. Apparently there is a team and the coach asked me to join and f...

Re: Poorly Run Event Stories

Last year at my regional event the people running Scrambler had no idea what they were doing and set up the event on a carpet. My coach got very angry and forced them to move it to the gym. After that they just eyeballed a ten meter line and by then my coach was gone so I made them measure out ten m...

Re: Experimental Design B/C

Hey I was wondering what the best materials to look through were. I was assigned this event about an hour ago and my state competition is tomorrow (two people quit this event on my team and I stepped in). I read through the rubric and the rule sheet and I feel somewhat confident (especially since I...

Winning distances/times? Average or best?

The teams before me all broke eggs or hit the bucket and the team after me was over 2 feet off a school slower I wasn't able to watch the rest. the judge ...
