Re: Robot Arm C

Robot Arm is out of the rotation for next year? Really? Where did you see this? I'm wouldn't be surprised since most events are on a two year cycle, but I'd expect that robot arm might get three years due to the needed investment and complexity. Though I am interested to see what, if any, robotic e...

Re: Keep the Heat B/Thermodynamics C

So could anyone answer my question: Are cement glue considered as "expandable glue?" I don't really understand when they say "expandable glue." Doesn't all glues expand? What about some glue that doesn't change size (solid)? It looks like it's expandable since it's solid but it's actually not... Ex...

Re: Robot Arm C

Would you say that wires that are carrying current from a battery to a motor are "powered" by that battery? Should I write that in my tech docs, or N/A? It shouldn't be needed. The wires are not consuming energy from the battery, ignoring the inevitable heat and electromagnetism created by the curr...

Re: MagLev C

I know the rules state that the test is to be taken by the team but does that imply that the team takes the test together or both member get their own test? Either way, the team takes a test.
