Re: Replaying Events for 2021

To my knowledge, the National Tournament schedule included in the annual rules (which is then used as a guide by many tournaments) is set by that year's National Tournament Director as it needs to be based on what the host site can accommodate. That is why, for example, Disease Detectives was not s...

Re: Replaying Events for 2021

So in the spirit of "replaying" events, I can assume conflicts will be completely the same on the nationals schedule? Changing those up could be a way to make a significant difference without changing too much, although some people will probably get thrown under the bus.

Re: Indiana 2020

How would we bring this up to the board. Can you email them or is there another way to suggest this idea. I trust that the board has already checked this forum and has considered every option possible to keep states going. We can only now wait until they decide to publicize their decision, based on...

Re: Indiana 2020

A faculty or staff member who believes that they have an essential business reason to hold an event can request a waiver through their unit leader (dean, vice provost, vice president, etc.), but again, the expectation is such waivers will be rare. - from the Purdue update If we can convince them an...

hi. the temperatures are chosen after all teams are at competition site right?
If you meant the temperature ranges for the LEDs, then yes you will only know the ranges once you walk into the testing room and they start.

Re: Codebusters C

So I've seen quite a few tests that have questions like this and I wanted ti know if it is a mistake or if it isn't, how to solve it. For codes like Morbit and Pollux, you're supposed to be given 6 hint digits. Usually its like 1=--, 2=.-, 4=-x...etc. However, on some tests it just says "hint digit...

Due to another idiotic FAQ, you aren't allowed to calibrate with the ES provided water. Why on earth they have the water then, I do not know.
Where does it say that? I can't find it.

Re: Detector Building C

I've been thinking about using a non traditional device which doesn't take in voltage as an input to measure temperature to get around the ADC resolution stuff, and it's worked so far. The sensor is a capacitor which is pretty much a basic electronic component, do you think that this is legal? Beca...

Re: Dynamic Planet B/C

Excuse me, but why is there even a binder given for this event? I've never done Dyplan before but I did 3 study last year and with the amount of things you have to learn about an entire binder feels like overkill. Like what? To be fair, glaciers was a relatively small topic so a notesheet made sens...
