Re: Keep the Heat B/Thermodynamics C

All of the problems that Frogger mentioned are legitimate problems, and the results of his experiment are reasonable by my testing. But all of those problems can be accounted for by the students' preparation. It reminds me of last year in optics, how the rules did not prevent supervisors from using ...

Re: Keep the Heat B/Thermodynamics C

Cotton is organic and fibrous, so it's legal. Rubber is neither granular or fibrous, so even if it's organic, it's illegal.

Re: Robot Arm C

First of all, I just want to say that I'm impressed by the amount of useful discussion in this thread! I noticed that in my team, at least a third of all our new freshmen intend to do Robot Arm, since the idea of building robots must appeal to a lot of people. Looks like that happened around the co...

Re: Sumo Bots C

First of all, are you thinking that sumo bots is going to be an event in New York this year? I hadn't heard so, but I'm not in New York. Anyway, there are lots of companies that sell high powered gearmotors. If I were you I'd look at a company like Robot Marketplace. They retail lots of great robot ...

Re: South California

Traveling to another state costs money. A lot of districts, like mine, provide absolutely no funding for trips outside the state, and those buses are really expensive. Also, hosting an invitational can't be done by everybody. It requires a school with enough gym-like space to accommodate the big bui...
