Re: Elevated Bridge B/C

I think that it should be a disqualification. 15 cm equals 15.000000000000000000... The last time I checked 15.00000000000000000<15.004. The last time I checked the rules, they stated 15.0 cm, not 15 cm. A sig fig was included; if they had wanted to indicate infinite sig figs they would logically h...

Re: Elevated Bridge B/C

Blame the ruler. I'm getting another one :) Although, to be honest, the difference was basically invisible. Plus, the judge measured at an angle to the bridge, which would have made the bridge height *seem* too high. The way the judge measured with a ruler is relatively significant in this case, sin...

Re: Trajectory B/C

BEFORE YOU POST YOU SHOULD ALL KNOW THAT BY GIVING ANY TYPE OF ADVICE YOU ARE HELPING YOUR COMPETITION :D
What's wrong with competition that's a little stronger? That makes things more fun, especially at nationals. :mrgreen:

Re: Egg-O-Naut C

We can only launch each rocket once. I tried using the same parachute at states, but they didn't let us do that either. To be safe, I would just have two completely separate rockets that don't share any parts.

Re: Elevated Bridge B/C

The winning B division bridge in Washington State came in just under 1650, and effortlessly took the full 15kg. Beware of this team at the national level!
