Re: Indiana 1994

Is this a glitch, or just for fun? I might have missed something I don't know? Whoa, 2020? Yeah, that's gotta be some glitch because that's, like, 26 years from now. However, personally, I think Indiana 1994 is the second most exciting competition to ever hit Science Olympiad. I doubt anybody will ...

Re: Ping Pong Parachute B/C

One rule that was being enforced at NJ states was the rule that said you can only launch a rocket if it had a log (implying you need a separate log for each rocket you bring) and they refused to let us use our second rocket. I reread the rules and can confirm that this is true, but has anyone had t...

Isn't 30 bar a few hundred psi?
Yeah... I'm quite surprised that the rocket survived. 30 bar is 435 psi
I am pretty sure most bike pumps don't go past 12 bar.
I don't think they do... we may have broken the pump lol.

Re: Changes for next year

But this could be a little sketchy because the rules allow competitors to bring their own bike pump, and each bike pump is calibrated a little differently (I have experienced this first hand). So the idea would just be to get the bike pump that pumps very high PSI, but only read very low PSI. This ...

Re: Machines C 2020-2021

Under criticism of the rules, they pretty clearly said what's required on each graph. I don't recollect on the top of my head what they are, but I remember I got full graph points every time for my machine. This one time, we got full points on a data log (for Ping Pong Parachute) but the proctor sa...

Re: Changes for next year

I actually believe that getting the parachute to land outside a certain diameter is relatively easy. I have noticed with every single parachute that I have made is that it drifts consistently. When dropping from 15 feet, I could get the parachute to drift nearly at a 45 degree angle. I think this b...
