Re: Experimental Design B/C

Yeah that was pretty intense! Our first independent variable were the different types of gloves. We forgot the word latex for the first half of the event so we had to go back and change our label of "thin black rubber glove" to "black latex glove." :lol: The other ones became the black cotton work g...

Re: Entomology B/C

A bit late but Identify order, family, and common names. Bonus 1: Name the species common name. Bonus 2: Why is it given this species common name? Bonus 3: If you wanted to preserve this insect, would you be able to pin it? If not, what can you do so that you can pin it? http://bugguide.net/images/c...

Re: Experimental Design B/C

I had my state competition last weekend and the experiment had an interesting twist so I thought I'd mention it here. The materials we were given included a dynamometer (measures grip force), three different types of gloves, a stopwatch (even though we can bring in one), an angle measuring device (...

Re: Season 2015 - Site Suggestions

This doesn't regard the entire site, but would it be possible for Balsa to update last year's Quiz game for Entomology and Rocks & Minerals for next year's events? I know it's a lot of images, but that is my favorite thing on this entire site.

Re: Texas 2015

Congrats to LASA and Seven Lakes for advancing to nats. Looking at the C division results, it seems that subpar performances in scrambler and chem lab led to Clements's 3rd place performance. Scrambler is an event that can easily go wrong, so we can cut them slack on that, but they really needed to...

Re: Bottle Rocket B

I found the wording of how the times would be scored a bit confusing, but from what I understand, if I launch 2 rockets and both got, for example, eight seconds, my score would be 16 sec. Am I correct or would the score be 8 sec.?
