Re: Keep the Heat B/Thermodynamics C

Hmm so there was still some inconsistency. Not that it honestly affects scores that much, the ratio of external to internal would have been pretty similar (guessing ours would be slightly better with predicting cooling 8.9 degrees vs. 10, but probably not a significant difference). I'm guessing all ...

Re: MagLev C

The winning car was 7.1 kg at .85 seconds for a ~8350 at 64 cm (or at least that's the car score of the winning team). I'm not sure how good solon was, but I believe their score was slightly worse, or maybe we just beat them on the test. It would be interesting if they released the full score sheet ...

Re: Science Olympiad 2013-2014

You have a car with an egg mounted on the front that is propelled (usually by a falling mass if i remember correctly) towards a wall. The goal is to stop as close to the wall as possible so that your egg doesn't break and also travel the distance as quickly as possible.
