Re: Shock Value B/Circuit Lab C

Why do we take the reciprocal of the sum of the reciprocals of parallel resistors? (What is the formula derived from?) The conductance equals one over the resistance. In a parallel circuit the electrons have multiple paths to flow through, so the conductance of each path adds to give the total cond...

Re: Washington 2013

Does anyone have the results of the Aviation Invite? 1. Bothell - 46 2. Camas - 104 3. Lakeside - 154 4. Stanwood - 161 Just as a quick note, three of my teammates and I were competing at Science Bowl regionals and so were absent. Also, our team got DQ'd in forensics for some reason. Had we been th...

Re: Almost....

Almost got 5 golds at our invitational this year.
Took 2nd in Astronomy after a double tiebreaker (which I'm convinced was a coin flip as there was only one tiebreaker marked on the test :P).

Re: Sounds of Music B

1) Simpler is better (until it gets too simple). You want to find something that fits your playing ability, and especially for invitationals it's better to play a simple song "well" than to play a complex song "okay". 2) Don't do video game music; it's probably a bad idea. My op...

Padouk or bubinga would be the next best thing, but if those are also out of budget go with maple.

Re: Washington 2013

Excellent job to all who competed at the Camas invitational yesterday! It was great to have you there - wish I would have had more time to meet and talk with some of you. This was, by teams, the largest competition in WA state history, and I hope that everyone had a good time. Results: 1. Camas - 72...

Re: Sounds of Music B

What would be better and easier to make and play: A recorder or a flute as a treble instrument, also a Marimba or a Xylophone as a bass clef instrument? For your intents and purposes, Marimbas and Xylophones are the same. That is, unless you are using "marimba" to refer to an instrument w...

Re: Disease Detectives B/C

Where in the rules does it say that the topic is environmental quality? In part d of number 3, they list food poisoning, West Nile and state data on bicycle injuries.... (I could be misunderstanding something because this is my first year for the event...) edit: forget the above, sorry, that was re...

Re: Sounds of Music B

Hi everyone i was wondering if anyone has ever done a xylophone for sounds of music? I played and helped make the marimba that took first at nationals alongside our team's violin. Xylophones and marimbas are essentially the same thing, just with slightly different tuning (first overtone on marimba ...

Re: Sounds of Music B

This event is as challenging as you make it. You can whip out a simple PVC thongophone in a weekend, but crafting and tuning a full scale bass marimba takes hundreds of hours of dedication. It takes an hour to learn Mary had a Little Lamb, and weeks to perfect a classical duet. The amount of frustra...

Re: Sounds of Music B

Generally, I'd say its easy to make a wind instrument that works , but very hard to make a wind instrument that sounds good.

Re: Disease Detectives B/C

The topic is Environmental Quality, right? Does anyone know of any good books, websites, or other resources for this year? Honestly, everything on the soinc page is really excellent. Go through everything there and you will be golden. No, not really. They haven't updated the page with 2013 info yet...
