Re: Video of my daughter's device with 11 tasks.

Thanks so much for sharing! Great device. I love the evolution to the metal frame. I'm curious about your timer. I thought it said the endothermic was your timer? I didn't think electricity was allowed for a timer? In fact we were penalized because our endo ran longer than 10 seconds and you can't ...

Re: SciTech Bowl B/C [NY TRIAL]

All of these topics and more are covered in Fermi Questions with the added complexity of having to calculate the order of magnitude with no calculators and no outside reference resources.

However, this one is in front of an audience and with "sudden Death" so that part is different.

Re: Bare Minimum

In my state it's very much worth it to submit a "rock" to build events (only one school submits build events). What is the simplest thing we can submit and still be score-able, even if it gets 0 points? (AKA not get disqualified or non-scorable) Does the machine even have to "work"? Can I just subm...

Re: Game On B

Would I get in trouble if I posted a link to the games from MD Regionals? They are shared publicly on Scratch. Since they are shared publicly, I don't think it'll be a problem if you posted the link. It will be helpful to all team as they prepare for their tournaments. I for one would love to see g...
