All right, to be more specific, how much of the thermodynamics material do we need to know? Like, do we need to know an entire college course's worth of thermodynamics (like in Optics), or is just basics of thermodynamics? Do we need to know the zeroth law of thermodynamics and stuff like that? Do we need to know pressure and effects it has on fluid s because it corresponds to thermodynamics in the way of heat? Should we know how to calculate all the different kinds of pressures and things like that? What about the kinetic theory? Microscopic descriptions for ideal gases? The four gas laws? Entropy? What else, other than that, do we need to know?
still its unrecognized as a problem...The main problem with elaborate measures to reduce temperature loss by the event supervisor is that the students also would have to use this for every test to be able to match the higher temperatures attained by the supervisors. For example heating a huge bath of water may be practical for a event supervisor at the competition, consider that the students might need to take these same procedures every time they test their device to get the higher starting temperatures.
Chalker,Right, but aluminum foil is explicitly listed as an acceptable material. I think this is where the question arises from, correct?Can we use aluminum foil tape to partially to insulate our box, but also use as fastening material. This is not exactly tape, but more of an aluminum foil roll that has a sticky side.

Take a close look at rule 3.a. - the fastening materials can't contribute to the insulating properties of the box.
