Re: Hovercraft B/C

Alright, so for some reason I have a bottle cap of about 10 penny roles, I'm fairly sure its because of my skirt design, I've tried so many different designs. Would anyone care to enlighten me on how their skirt works. Ahh, the skirt. https://scioly.org/wiki/index.php/Hovercraft#Skirt gives types o...

Re: Thermodynamics B/C

I find it annoying how they say the water temperature is say 70 C but when it ends up in our beaker it has dropped to 55 C. Anyone got a way to combat this problem or it pointless as it is most likely a event supervisor run problem? :?: As the others have pointed out, there is no way for the event ...

Re: Thermodynamics B/C

Thank you! On average, what's the ideal difference of temperature to make sure your device works? When I tested my device using 150 ml of 60 C water, the final temperature was 50 C Is this good? That's a fantastic score. Just don't expect a high prediction score if competing with people with a dece...

Re: Thermodynamics B/C

Does anyone have an idea of what a 'good' total score is? I don't really even know what to expect, since everything is relative. Everything (from the test to the ice water) counts, so prioritize what is important to you. I would strongly suggest looking back at section 5 in the rules to determine h...

Re: New York 2018

This is probably the wrong section for it, but I'm posting it as a general for the New York division. Who has a final results list downloaded for the 2016 Division B States? The links all expired, so I was wondering if someone has a .csv or .xlms file hanging around. I might be gracious to upload th...

Re: Thermodynamics B/C

As I am graduating from Division B this year (bienvenue to Division C, I guess. And another state!), what would you say is different from Division B thermo compared to Division C thermo? I've looked at the practice tests and to me, they look Division D (a college division Science Olympiad? Not too s...

Re: New York 2018

Unome, can you check if the Wiki formatting is decent for NYC Metro? I fixed a little. Looks pretty good to me, though I'd recommend including columns for the tournament date and number of state bids, and for the state placements of each team (like this page ). You can also use div tags to align th...

Re: New York 2018

Pretty sure Gelinas has been top 10 for at least three years in a row.
This is true. Fun fact: Actually, Gelinas has taken home a 10th place trophy in 2015, 2016, and 2017! In 2014 they just missed out.
Sadly we will never be as talented as Gelinas. :cry:
But, you can never give up!

Re: New York 2018

It's fun predicting both divisions! On the other hand, doesn't Gelinas have a really good shot at 1st compared with others? At most, I could see Eagle Hills maybe losing their second, but I'm not sure how likely that even is. True anything is possible, but usually there's only a few teams that take...
