Discussion for Keep the Heat B and Thermodynamics Lab C

Thermodynamics Lab Wiki

-Nothing\'s gonna get deleted. We\'re gonna be like three little Fonzies here. And what\'s Fonzie like? Come on, what\'s Fonzie like?
-Cool?
-Correctamundo. And that\'s what we\'re gonna be. We\'re gonna be cool. Now, I\'m gonna count to three, and when I count three, you let go of your mouse, and back away from the keyboard. But when you do it, you do it cool. Ready? One... two... three.

No, within the internal nomenclature of Science Olympiad, Keep the Heat and Thermodynamics are not considered Engineering/Building events as much as a lab event. Only (at most) half of the points will be coming from the insulating device.

That AND the title of the event is "Thermodynamics LAB." :P

The Table of Contents for the rules calls it just Thermodynamics, but close enough

I've never done this event before. What advice would you offer to a newbie?
(I also plan on reading the Wiki.) ;)

No one's done this event before, except perhaps a few people from Minnesota. So we'll have to wait for the rules to come out to find out

FYI, I wouldn't jump the gun on this. We provided a pretty limited list of materials in the rules that are permitted.
