Re: General Mission Possible

Any idea what is going on with the clarifications? I have submitted a few questions and have not had a response for about 7 weeks. I haven't seen any new clarifications since 12/20. I have heard the same from a few other coaches. Are we going to get anything before our regionals? If anyone knows the...

Re: Paddle Wheel Task

I understand the disclaimer, understood. As for the task, it was the final task and was used by at least 3 different schools and I had a long discussion with the judge and a few coaches about which side we felt the clarification would fall on. I would agree that the design of the rules were written ...

Re: Paddle Wheel Task

I have asked for a clarification on the final task asking if the mass being lifted can be pulled up a ramp instead of being lifted. It's been 3 weeks and I have not received a reply.

Re: Designs

Anybody have any idea if when building a Chinook do you need to have two of the flat balsa wood discs that they mention in 3a of the rules? Speaking of the wood disk, does anybody have any idea what they mean by "time stops if it dislodges"?

Re: Keep the Heat B/Thermodynamics C

If running this event would it be acceptable to use cold water at the outset? It seems that this would be easier to assure that all initial temperatures are the same by just pouring iced water (no cubes in the sample of course) into the containers. Just a thought to making the event easier to run.

Re: General Mission Possible

A couple of quick questions: For task 4d, would a bolt or threaded rod be usable as the screw in this task? And for 4l, could you use the same mass for the task, pull the mass up the ramp, release it down the ramp and have it pulled back up again? I would think that as long as the task was initiated...
