Re: Gravity Vehicle C

Why didn't you add more weights to the back of your car? We put lead BB's inside the PVC in the back of the car to add weight, but we ran out of room to accommodate more before we could hit the weight limit. Initially we tried to put something else on top of the car to get as close to 1.5kg as poss...

Re: Virginia 2013

I heard Longfellow has Science Olympiad as an elective lol... My friend could be wrong but that's what he told me. I doubt this is true; I know Longfellow has coaches for some events but I think that a Science Olympiad elective is a bit over the top. Your friend may be under the impression that the...

Re: Virginia 2013

Does anyone happen to know the top Elastic Launched Glider times at the Kilmer regional tournament (division C)?

Re: Virginia 2013

Congrats to everyone, it was a fun tournament. Boom didn't go that well because I failed to make strong connections at the distal end, so one of the tension members sheared off at about 2 kilos. During gravity, one wheel fell off while we were setting up for our 2nd run, so we had to spend extra tim...

Re: Virginia 2013

Updated the wiki to reflect the results of the Charlottesville Regionals. Anyone going to the Kilmer Regional? (I'll be there) Boomilevers were impounded D: I was a bit confused that they didn't tell us earlier. As per the rules, booms aren't impounded (neither are bridges and towers), but all VA co...
