Re: New York 2017

:oops:

I'm assuming raw scores for builds will not be released?
If you are referring to C states, the top 6 robot scores are posted on the Robot Arm forums and I also know the top 2 tower scores
Towers 3rd was 1750.

Re: Robot Arm C

I have just finished editing a short video of our 2017 Robot Arm running through its program. The arm basically moves in the x,y plane only with a hand that can "pinch" the stacks of pennies, flip them, and eject them one at a time. This design finished 2nd at the Wright State Invitational but has ...

Re: Robot Arm C

Assuming all these are tails and they got the 10 bonus points, I count 9 in the center, 34 in the second ring, and 7 in the third ring, for a total of 736 points. Seems like they got a bit unlucky with a lot of the coins in the second ring, or didn't have enough time to adjust them. https://drive.g...

Re: Robot Arm C

Any confirmation as to whether or not the top scoring Robot Arm team qualified for Nats? That score is highest at a competition I've seen all year. :o I'm pretty sure that neither of the top two teams (at least) in Robot Arm qualified for Nationals, but that's just from memory from watching the liv...

Re: New Jersey 2017

Very odd that they would hold tournaments on school days. Any particular reason for this other than tradition? Also does anyone have the complete (tentative) states results? Getting this right off the bat, let me just say that: 1. I'm an undergraduate and thus alumni of the Science Olympiad program...

Re: New Jersey 2017

Anyone know why this states' states (haha) is on a tuesday, today? State tournaments in New Jersey have always been on Tuesdays. Regional tournaments are also on weekdays. Very odd that they would hold tournaments on school days. Any particular reason for this other than tradition? Also does anyone...

Re: Helicopter Flight Times

3:40 flight time 6 m gym at states.
Considering you haven't gotten over 2 minutes before that and that there was a huge problem with helis getting stuck I doubt this time was achieved without some sort of major interference with the ceiling/getting stuck.

Re: Robot Arm C

Jeff I was hoping you could provide some unofficial insight into how supervisors determine whether or not a penny is "in" a circle or not - especially the ones that are very borderline. Do you have a specific system or method? I would also like some clarification on this. As you know the maximum nu...

Re: Pictures, Videos, and Scores

Their coach, as far as I know, interprets the rules as it being legal to knock the cans aside. When you read the rules, it says the bonus is the distance between the cans before the run and there is no penalty for hitting the cans. So as long as you go between them you can push them apart with your...

Re: Pictures, Videos, and Scores

what do you guys think the winning score at nationals will be? Mentor has been getting 5cm bonus easily. With that bonus and a 2-3 second time, I predict the winning score will probably be around -15 to -18 with some luck. What do you guys think? 5 cm bonus???? Like cans 5 cm apart? Yes Wow, that's...
