What is "granular organic material"? Could we use marshmellows ?? Or would they need to be ground up into a "granular" marterial?

Now I'm not totally sure, but I don't think marshmallows are 'organic'
Though I'm also not sure what was meant by "granular organic material", dirt?

Would sand be okay?
I mean:
-It's granular.
-It's "organic" sort of.

I do believe silicon contains carbon. ;)

Silicon is an element, and that bars it from containing carbon (elements can't contain other elements). In addition (if I remember correctly from science class), a compound has to contain carbon and hydrogen to be organic, and all of the compounds that have chemical formulas listed in Wikipedia- List of Organic Compounds contain carbon and hydrogen. Therefore, I wouldn't consider sand organic.

When disassembling the device, do all the nails need to be taken out as well? That would be rather hard and will make it a one-time only thing.

First, standard caveat about this not being the place for official clarifications.. That said, if you read the related rule closely, you'll notice the point of taking it apart is for the supervisor to verify the materials, and is at the discretion of the supervisor. Thus there isn't going to be 1 particular answer to your question (since different supervisors may view 'verify' differently), however the question you should ask yourself is "would a reasonable person be able to verify all the materials used in my device without me taking out the nails".
