counting on fingers is the most effective way if you are dealing with numbers less than ten

wow is my state the only one that doesnt give out medals for invitationals?? There are 2 invitationals in my state and all we do at them is pick 2 events and then we take either the naitonals test or a sample test from the soinc website then they give us the answers and we self grade it. The man who runs reach for the stars usually shows us a power point and we have a discussion about space related stuff. I really like it =]

It's possible. I know that for the Boyceville invite, which was yesterday, we gave out 1st and 2nd to large school and small school for each event. I finally medaled because of it. I got first in Trajectory with Sliced Bread 34 as my partner, he built the device, I helped calibrate it. And first in It's About Time with Armcon as my partner. Armcon hasn't posted yet so you guys probably don't know him. With Junkyard we came in third, behind my brother who is a freshman as opposed to me as a junior, so I was upset. I wonder if it was because of the robot that I didn't medal before...

we get metals for the invitationals they are run just like Reginals or State, just at the one my school goes not they are a little less strick on some of the rules (like if you forgot eye protection or things like that)
