Re: Question for the Storm the Castle buffs :)

Hi, congratulations on the improvement! :D To prevent misalignment problems, I suggest using a sort of convex on concave (or vice versa) guide system to keep things aligned. The ball bearings on aluminum rod attached the the arm fulcrum is an idea I used as well. Also, to improve your distance, ther...

Re: Science Olympiad 2013-2014

From what I understand for Bungee Egg Drop, it is an event where you are given a variable mass and a variable height to drop from and are expected to tweak the bungee on your structure in a way that it extends very close, but not touching the ground?

Re: Texas 2013

It might be just me, but this might have been the least-organized State competition in a while. I wholeheartedly agree. And like, this is minor in comparison to the wind problem for Storm the Castle, but one of their weights was actually >15cm tall, which kind of screwed my team over because the gu...
