I don't know. It was like five or six seconds. Maybe longer. Our launches were kinda off because the launcher was freezing up and it wasn't coming off right.

Re: Technical Problem Solving

We got 2nd at regionals. It was fun and I knew most of the stuff on the test. It was things like calculating trajectory and volume and things like that.

Re: Electric Vehicle C 2009

We worked on our vehicle until 10:30 the night before comp and on the bus there. We finally got it done enough so it had a chance to work and we got 5th surprisingly. :o :shock: Turns out it was the deciding points on wether or not we went to state! :P
